Sundays with Tiara Kelly

This weeks Sunday session is with Tiara Kelly, model, stunt performer, dancer, and lover of all things cannabis.

What’s up Tiara! Could you introduce yourself?

Heyyy, I’m Tiara Kelly also known as Barbie! An East Coast non binary icon taking over Hollywood with their beauty, magic and blackness! 

That might be our best intro to date. What’s your earliest memory of cannabis? 

My first time consuming cannabis was during tech week for our dance program and my group went to the woods to smoke. I smoked cigarettes, hookah and black&milds so I wasn’t scared. I remember loving how I felt dancing and doing things so freely! I knew I’d probably indulge again. 

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

A typical Sunday for me is watering all my plants as it’s their official feeding day, making a morning smoothie, playing my good morning playlist, twerking in the mirror with a blunt in hand! 

What’s your preferred consumption method?

I prefer to smoke blunts as I love the rolling process. I feel connected to myself and ancestors as they like tobacco. Sometimes I dump the guts on my altar as offerings or their own cigars. My connection to cannabis and magic is very deep as I feel it centers me to truly listen to the downloads I need to receive.

What do you think the future of cannabis looks like?

The future of cannabis is Black! We are coming back to take up space in many ways outside of the stereotypical “rapper weed”. Also many being released from jail for marijuana charges and ideas that these companies are making profits off today. I would like the industry expand to actively showcase others using it other than hippie white girls taking bong rips. Also, the world being better educated on all aspects of cannabis like THC, CBD, and CBN.

If you could give one piece of advice to the whole world, what would it be?

I would like to tell suggest the world to Honor yourself, live for yourself and love yourself!

Keep up with Tiara on Instagram.

Sundays with Stella Santana

This weekend we kicked it with artist and producer, Stella Santana to chat about how cannabis has influenced her as an artist, and her favorite consumption methods.

Hey Stella! Could you introduce yourself? 

I’m Stella Santana and I make music, my own and I also produce and executive produce for other artists/creative projects.

What is your earliest memory of cannabis? 

Growing up in California, my earliest memory of cannabis is hearing about it in 4th or 5th grade. The boys were talking about wanting to get high, knowing where their parents’ stashes were etc etc. But I didn’t end up smoking my first time until I was about 15 years old. I also grew up listening to a LOT of Bob Marley but it didn’t connect for me when I was young that cannabis was such a huge part of the songs I had memorized all the lyrics to, haha!

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

My perfect Sunday would definitely include me being productive for a little. I like to work on multiple projects at once so making sure I’m always moving them forward in some way, big or small, allows me to enjoy unplugging a lot more. I don’t like having things hanging over my head. Then after, I’d love to be in the sun or go on a nice drive maybe to the beach or up a mountain – I like to be in places that remind me how small I am and how vast the world and universe are 🙂 And of course, I’d pack some joints to smoke with me as well!

What’s your preferred consumption method? What activities do you enjoy pairing with your high?

I’m a smoker all the way! I used to be into the vapes but now I’m super picky and only enjoy a very select few vape brands. I stick to pre rolls when they’re available (mostly when I’m in California, less when I’m in New York) or else I’ve been a good joint roller for years! And I definitely always pair music making with smoking. Basically anything creative! I also enjoy being on drives and smoking – I’m lucky that my husband likes to drive so I can just enjoy the view and be in the moment.

Do you ever use cannabis to help create music?

Yes, always!! Speaking of music, I just dropped a new song which you can listen to here!

If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Definitely Eartha Kitt! She was such a strong woman and she was fearless! That interview where dude asks her if she would compromise for a man and she throws her head back and laughs?!?!? I just– this is truly iconic (even though everyone says that nowadays *eye roll*). I remember the first time I saw that, I was in my 20s and I just felt it so much. I would love to talk to her about creativity, about being a creative woman, about being a creative woman in this industry, omg I would love to spend the whole day with her, puffin’ and expanding my mind and soul!

Which artist are you really excited about right now?

I think we’re in a very interesting time where the world isn’t as escapist as it used to be – we are craving more depth, more human-ness, more substance. It’s been really inspiring to watch all different kinds of creatives emerge for being themselves, for calling out racism, white supremacy, the patriarchy, etc. I’ve started following a lot of new graphic design artists, photographers, musicians, etc. because they’re not trying to be trendy or liked – they’re thinking and speaking outside the norms of society and that inspires the shit out of me. Some of them are Noname, Drielycarter, Supergirlreject, CharlotteparlerAmandasealesDomrobxrts.

What do you think the future of cannabis looks like?

I’m hoping, first and foremost that the millions of people of color who’ve been locked up for possession and selling will be released and their records expunged.

If you could give one piece of advice to the whole world, what would it be?

“There is nothing more important to true growth than realizing you are not the voice of your mind – you are the one who hears it”

Sundays With Mimi Lam

This Sunday we (virtually) hung out with Mimi Lam, badass Canadian cannabis entrepreneur and mastermind behind Superette.

Hey Mimi! Could you please introduce yourself and describe what you do? 

Hi, I’m Mimi! I am a Sagittarius/Ophiuchus and a proud enneagram type 1. Some of you may know me from cannabis brand Superette. I live in Toronto, Canada, and I spend my time building the most fun and badass team out there. I am a stubborn entrepreneur that gets bored way too easily and has a constant case of wanderlust. 


45__D6A7219_SuperetteSummerHill_KRocca.jpg

What is your earliest memory of cannabis? When did you know you wanted to get into the cannabis industry?

In general? I think it was when I caught a whiff of it while walking around downtown Ottawa with my mom as a kid. Many years after that, I started consuming medically and recreationally. 

However, it wasn’t until late 2016 that I wanted to get into the cannabis industry, when there was a real path for legalization across Canada. The opportunity to not only be part of such a monumental regulatory shift, but also the hope of helping push it in the right direction after a history of wrongs was too good to pass. Plus, I love weed, so getting to work in the industry is like a dream come true.

What does your perfect Sunday look like? 

Depends on the season, but I relax by being active. 

In the summer, my perfect Sunday is waking up early for a nice long bike ride with my fiancé, followed by hanging out on our balcony or in the park with a cold bevvy and a joint. 

When the weather’s not great, I stay indoors doing lots of yoga and cooking up a storm. I’ll likely overdo it on making too many desserts, but I can’t deny testing out a new baking recipe.

What’s your preferred consumption method? What activities do you enjoy pairing with your high?

Nothing beats a good joint. Pair it with a nice walk and some good music in my ears? Yes. Please. 

If getting a massage counts as an activity, then also this.


MimiLam_018WEB.jpg

A massage absolutely counts. If you could share a joint with any person alive or dead, who would it be and why?

Oooooh that’s such a tough question. Conan O’Brien because that would be hilarious. Plus, I heard he needs a friend.

Which artist are you really excited about right now?

Charlotte Langley, a chef of my dreams and a culinary QUEEN. Aside from simply mastering all things food, I love that she is a champion for sustainability and also cooks with cannabis! 

I am obsessed with Scout Canning, which is a company that Charlotte co-founded and just launched this year. Their commitment to sustainability, from fair workplace compensation to 100% recyclable packaging, sets an incredible standard in the food industry and for all product companies around the world.

What gets you excited about the cannabis industry?

So many things. Probably the top of the list is greater research and acceptance of cannabis by the medical and academic communities. We are so far from understanding the full potential of cannabis! With knowledge comes the potential for the development of products that can be beneficial to so many people in this world. As well, with knowledge comes education and at least a baseline understanding of cannabis in our society, which in turn will lead to normalization – something that I will always fight for and why I am so passionate about being in this industry. 

If you could give one piece of advice to cannabis consumers, what would it be?

Pay attention to what you are consuming, it makes a big difference in helping you understand what you enjoy, what is best for you. For instance, pay attention to the terpene and cannabinoid profiles of flower, rather than simply whether it is indica or sativa. Not only that, pay attention to who had a part in the product that eventually ended up in your hands. As a consumer, you get to vote with your dollars and the onus is on you to educate yourself about the retailers and brands you are buying from. Conscious consumption is important for everything and especially for cannabis.

Thanks for hanging with us Mimi! Keep up with her on Instagram and if you’re in Toronto or Ottawa then be sure to check out Superette!

Interview with Last Prisoner Project

Interview with Last Prisoner Project

As you may have heard, we recently partnered with Last Prisoner Project as part of our ongoing High Priorities donation initiative. Today, we chat with Mary Bailey, Managing Director at Last Prisoner Project, on what the future of cannabis justice looks like and how we can each do our part to make a difference.

Hi Mary! Let’s jump right into it, is there injustice in the current judicial system towards cannabis crimes? 

Last Prisoner Project’s work is inherently interconnected with racial justice. Not only is there a disparity in who is targeted for cannabis arrests, but those disparities continue in sentencing so that communities of color are more likely to be convicted and serve longer prison sentences for nonviolent cannabis offenses. We also know that suspected cannabis possession has been used to justify some of the most egregious examples of police violence and murder of Black Americans. 

What is the Last Prisoner Project?

The Last Prisoner Project (LPP) is a coalition of cannabis industry leaders, executives and artists dedicated to bringing restorative justice to the cannabis industry. LPP is dedicated to releasing cannabis prisoners and helping them rebuild their lives. As the United States moves away from the criminalization of cannabis, giving rise to a major new industry, there remains the fundamental injustice inflicted upon those who have suffered criminal convictions and the consequences of those convictions. Through intervention, advocacy and awareness campaigns, the forces behind the Last Prisoner Project will work to redress the past and continuing harms of these unjust laws and policies and are dedicated to making sure that every last victimless cannabis prisoner walks free.

How did you get involved with LPP?

I have been involved with the cannabis industry for most of my adult life. I think that it is an absolute travesty that cannabis is now a booming legal industry yet there are still over 40,000 people incarcerated for a plant medicine that is practically legal in most states and has been deemed an essential business during a global crisis.  I have worked with our co-founders to create Last Prisoner Project from the ground up and it has been incredibly inspiring to see the cannabis industry show up to support our efforts. 

How can cannabis consumers make a difference?

Cannabis consumers can educate the extended cannabis community about the injustice of there still being over 40,000 people incarcerated for cannabis in America.  Some of these people are serving life sentences for cannabis. You can learn about their stories on our website

How can people get involved with LPP?

You can learn more about our work on our website, and by following us on social media.  You can support our work by donating to our organization by texting FREEDOM to 24365 to donate or by visiting our website.

With the upcoming election in November, many states will see adult-use and medical-use cannabis legislation. What should voters be aware of as it relates to the justice system should adult or medical use pass?

As new policy is created to allow adult-use legislation in new states, it is imperative that this new legislation allows for the release of cannabis offenders who are incarcerated.  This should be built into the policy, but unfortunately that has not been the case in any of the states that have passed adult use legislation.  We must do better. Our organization is creating a new 501C4 arm of our organization so that we can legally do legislative outreach and have a seat at the table to advocate for cannabis prisoners as new policy is developed. 

As a final note, are there any pressing cases you’re currently working on?

Yes, unfortunately our worst fears have been realized. Michael Thompson has been hospitalized with COVID-19. At 69 years old and diabetic, we are terrified that Michael will not make it. It is clear that those in power in Michigan do not believe in the humanity of our incarcerated community members but we need you to show them that we value Michael’s life, and that he doesn’t deserve to die in detention.

We would like to ask your audience to PLEASE help Michael by calling the Parole Board and Governor Whitmer to urge them not to return Michael to prison from the hospital. He has already served 25 years for only 3 lbs. of cannabis. Don’t let a nonviolent cannabis sentence become a death sentence for Michael Thompson.

Thank you for joining us Mary, and for all the important work you do at LPP. Please consider reaching out to the people listed below to make your voice heard and prevent cannabis being a death sentence for Michael Thompson.

Michigan Parole Board (517) 373-0270, Governor Whitmer’s office (517) 373-3400, Michael’s MDOC number is 176309.
