Sundays with the Cannabis Cutie

This Sunday we chatted with Tammy Pettigrew, AKA The Cannabis Cutie, self proclaimed mom, cannabis entrepreneur, and cannabis educator.

Hey Tammy! Tell us about your earliest memory of cannabis? 

One of my earliest memories of cannabis was when I lived in an apartment complex, and went to the complex’s laundry room to switch my clothes over to the dryer. When I walked into the room, it was super smokey and the smell was oddly familiar! I learned when I was an adult that there were members in my household that consumed cannabis and that’s why the smell was so familiar.

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

The perfect Sunday to me is getting lost in a really good book, taking a walk in nature, and consuming cannabis all in-between!

Do you ever use cannabis when making art?

Always! I had the pleasure of going to a “toke and paint” event and loved that I was able to openly consume cannabis while I created. Even when I write, I always make sure to take a toke. When I consume with intention, It helps open my mind and release any stress that may be in my body.

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

My preferred consumption method is joints! There’s something about the ritual of being able to touch the flower, smell it, and roll it that is soothing. I also love the way cannabis smoke smells (probably nostalgia from my childhood, ha!)

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

I would love to share a joint with Snoop Dogg. He is a cannabis icon, and grew up listening to his music. I put that on my bucket list when I was introduced to cannabis in college, and I truly believe it will happen one day! I have so many questions for him.

Which artist are you really excited about right now?

I’m always excited about the art Jhene’ Aiko produces. She’s a great writer, poet, and singer. Her 2020 Deluxe Album, Chilombo, has been on repeat since it dropped. Jhene’s song “I’m Tryna Smoke,” has been an anthem of mine lately. And the remix includes the one, the only, Snoop Dogg. It’s an instant smoker classic in my book.

What gets you excited about the cannabis industry?

The idea that others have an opportunity to join a brand new industry and create something of their own, gets me excited about the cannabis industry! This industry is in its infancy, which means the rules are being written right now! Anyone can join this industry and be successful. Whatever skill someone has, whether it’s writing, digital or interior design, research, speaking, marketing, teaching, there is a place for everyone and their skill set.

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

My advice would be to go after what fuels that fire within you, even if others don’t understand. I think so often others make decisions that are expected of them, without thinking about how it really makes them feel. Fight for you and for what you want. Chances are, if you’re chasing that thing that you are passionate about, you are on the right path.

Cannabis injustice: How you can help

Earlier this year we partnered with Last Prisoner project as part of our High Priorities initiative, and one of the most common questions we’ve been asked is “how can I get involved?”. We chatted with the people behind LPP and they recommended becoming a part of their letter writing program. By writing to a person incarcerated for cannabis crimes, you have an opportunity to brighten their day and let them know that you are thinking of them and fighting for them. Below is more information on what, how and who to write to, brought to you by Last Prisoner Project and Deedee Kirkwood.

What to write

It’s up to you! You could include an introduction with a short bio, explanation about how you heard of the program, hobbies, pets, music, activism, etc. Let them know that cannabis justice activists like yourself are fighting for their freedom!

Sundays with Savina Monet

Meet Savina Monet, a graphic designer and founder of the Cannabis Workers Coalition. When she’s not working on dope client work, you’ll find her creating cannabis collages that inspire people to take action on issues that are important right now.

What is your earliest memory of cannabis?
Growing up, cannabis was that “funny smell” that hung around my mom’s bedroom or thick on her clothes when I would nestle up close to her. Cannabis in one form or another has been in my family since before I was thought of, usually grown as an ornamental flower in my great grandparents’ backyard. It wasn’t until I was 15 when I smoked my first joint with friends at a party that I was able to put a name to that “funny smell”.

What does your perfect Sunday look like?

Sundays are so sacred to me. I usually reserve my self-care for Sundays which can include a hike through the forest, a scenic drive, or enjoying my safe space with a jay in hand.

Do you ever use cannabis when making art?

Surprisingly, not as often as people would think. I usually medicate in the mornings to fully center myself before the day begins, so by the time I’m creating I am not so out of it that I get distracted. I can’t tell you how many hours I’ve lost looking for source material, there are just so many beautiful photos and if I’m not focused on what I’m looking for, it gets out of hand easy haha.

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

Flower Power all the wayyyy. There’s nothing better than being outdoors when you are high and in the Pacific Northwest we are spoiled with endless possibilities.

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

Oh wow, that’s a toughie. I’m going to go back in time and say I’d share a joint with Frida Kahlo. Frida is definitely an inspiration when it comes to mixing political messages with artwork and I’m sure she would have a lot to say about what’s going on in the world today.

What gets you excited about the cannabis industry?

I get excited thinking about the opportunity we have to shape this industry unlike any industry we have seen before. While most signs point to cannabis being another capitalistic cash cow, I have faith that it’s still very young and malleable. If we get the right people in office and purchase from equitable companies, we might be able to turn this industry all the way around and create an open-market where anyone, regardless of color, class, or past-convictions could participate.

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

There’s so much to say, but it boils down to one thing: give love and receive love whenever you can.

What do you think the future of cannabis looks like?

In my mind I see farmer’s markets filled with dank, neighbors growing stalks of flower in their backyard, Black and Brown communities medicating without fear of prosecution, I see cannabis looking like just another plant.
