That word reminds me of Pink Floyd posters hung with multicolored tacks, feeling excited about a new South Park episode, and three-hour cases of the giggles as I made the first friends with which smoking rituals were established. Do these words mean two different things? Thinking about it as a plant helps strip away the socially-attributed associations of illegal contraband and deadend pastime.
If one is talking about cannabis, one is given a tiny chance to demonstrate not only how they refer to this plant, but how they think about it.
If we challenge people to think about it as something other than the drug their parents told them to stay away from, a different word altogether, you just might make a crack big enough for them to start questioning long-held stigmas. The first legitimization of the word appeared in the Marihuana Tax Act ofat a point in time where many believe the United States government intentionally coined a foreign-sounding name. Anti-immigration sentiment had been on the rise throughout the s during the Great Depression, with so few jobs to go around in general.
So, does it matter what we call this plant? Kind of. A West Coast native with the ability to smell a legitimate cut of Girl Scout Cookies and a Literature degree from the University of California at Santa Cruz, Lauren was destined to be a cannabis culture critic. Since moving to Portland inshe's experienced working for a dispensary, running one, managing harvest and sales at a state-d farm, all the while writing about the legal updates, plant science, consumer trends and the emerging scene around social consumption.
Her articles about the cultural and commercial happenings in the cannabis industry have appeared in Willamette Week, Broccoli, High Times and Rolling Stone, among others. This is a BETA experience.
