I’m the co-founder of a lifestyle publication for the modern cannabis consumer.
Despite the fact cannabis is a daily part of millions of people’s lives, we felt there was nothing in the space that reflected the way most people really interact with it. It’s not all about getting high or researching strains: it’s about having a better experience. We want to offer that same quality of experience through our content.

Civil forfeiture, which allows US police officers to take assets from people they suspect of wrongdoing without actually having to charge them with a single crime; pet stores; and the death penalty.

It’s one of the most beautifully quiet experiences I’ve ever had.
‘Come Dancing’ by The Kinks, ‘XO’ by Beyonce and ‘If I Had A Million Dollars’ by Barenaked Ladies.
Teen Vogue. Or ‘Drinks ‘n’ Snacks’, a bodega I’d open with my best friend, offering a mix of high-end sandwiches, tasty cocktails, and corner store staples: kitty litter, toilet paper, and the world’s best selection of 99-cent ramen.
A low-dose edible, long bath, and a good book.
Anyone with the conviction to make decisions every day that reflect their moral beliefs.
A never-ending bowl of spaghetti bolognese; sea urchin sushi; and a two-cheeseburger meal from McDonald’s, Big Mac sauce on the burgers, large fries, four-piece nuggets, and a diet Coke. Raspberry rhubarb pie with vanilla ice cream.
I am firmly anti-regret. It’s not worth the time or the energy.
