Meaning Behind the Name
Hailing from Humboldt County, California, known largely in California for the harvesting and routine consumption of "pot" or cannabis. Potluck promotes the cannabis lifestyle, respectively. Both artists have their Prop. 215 cards. Most of their songs, like most artists on the Suburban Noize record label, are about growing and/or smoking the plant.
