I love the cannabis industry. It has been the industry that has welcomed me and my authentic self: my weirdness, and my passion, and in most cases- my tone and voice. It has been brought to my attention while traveling the country exploring Cannabis, talking to people- in different spaces within the industry, that everyone is not experiencing the same feelings that I am with regards to the greatness within the industry.

In life, I see every day- things that could be better, things that could be changed, and solutions to some of the problems that we are seeing. I…

Psilocybin is Headed to the Oregon Ballot

Many are aware, and many aren’t. Briefly, let me explain the question that some may have: “what is psilocybin”? Psilocybin, is known to many as shrooms and/or magic mushrooms, and they are chemical compounds obtained from certain types of dried or fresh hallucinogenic (psychedelic) mushrooms found in Mexico, South America, Southern, and Northwest regions of the United States.

Psilocybin is a psychedelic, well, by definition anyway. By definition, a psychedelic is a class of psychoactive substances that produce changes in perception, mood, and cognitive processes.

I love every cannabinoid that Cannabis grows- both hemp and marijuana. They are magic, full of healing and should under no circumstance be illegal.

I can’t say that I have always felt the same about psychedelic mushrooms. I am one of those people that believed that psychedelics were bad (outside of Cannabis). I believed the lies the system told.

Cannabis has always been more familiar to me but shrooms and other psychedelics- no way; until now. Now I understand and know better! No longer trapped by the systems chains- I went on a journey of exploration and came back seeing…

“Imagine smoking weed in the streets without cops harassin’”

I can only imagine because even in legal states, the scent of marijuana is enough for a cop to find something to rub his/her ego on. Though getting a little closer, I’m with Nas on imagining the day that we can all smoke weed in the streets without cops harassing. But for me, it goes a little further; I imagine the ways that our government can heal us instead of waking up daily, choosing to harm us.

Our government, with the powers that we allow them to have, created a list…
