Powerful Women to Book for Cannabis & Drug Policy Reform Events

In the era of basic dime-a-dozen get-rich-quick-off-marijuana-conferences that seem to be taking place at any given moment, I recommend those of us with skills to offer cut our losses and start our own goddamn conferences with more interesting lineups.  Over the past few years, I had the great honor of meeting talented people around the […]

My make-up motto is basically, “Who’s gonna stop me?” I don’t pay attention to make-up trends, since I’m old enough to see how arbitrary and repetitive they tend to be.
