Jodie Emery comes to mind.. she is educated, successful, powerful, attractive and speaks professionally & properly about cannabis, I draw better than anything.. ;) Jodie has made strides for cannabis across Canada & around the world & is by far one of the best women representing in the industry. Of course past representatives I think of Michelle Rainy, she was a True Queen in the Cannabis industry, her compassion was like no other we've experienced. Many women/advocates have an online presence - and they don't give themselves credit for all the awareness they bring! You don't need to be FAMOUS - you just need to be persistent. Persistent & passionate about this plant.
There are several women raising awareness regarding cannabis, you might have seen the new show on netflix- Disjointed. I watched a few episodes & I was disappointed with Disjointed. I was upset the first episode ended with a woman rubbing 'medicated lube on her steering wheel before she drives home - WTF? What genius approved that?
What message did that alone send out- never mind the constant degrading stoner mentality seen in the show. I didn't find it funny.. sure it has stereotypical stoner laughs, I found it disrespectful and disheartening for all who fight with their lives and children lives, more T.V. mind wasting stuff. For the record - I love Kathy Bates, I hope, IF it continues- they change it up a bit, I've read it's not doing so great.
Like most businesses - women are taken advantage of and stereo types like this are not helping. I know of women who want in the industry so bad - they are falling for the lies & snakes that tell them. Being used, abused and tossed like trash. IF anyone 'makes promises' - get it in writing. Men are still making all the money and degrading women along the way. I have witnessed first hand how liars work and how they manipulate - I recently found out 'a friend' has been nothing more than a liar: The Sun the Moon & the Truth, three things can not long be hidden.
I'm hurt, I lost a friend - not 'who they said they were' so I guess it's no real loss.
It is someone in the industry, I was struggling with going out in public before and am worse now because I found out this person was knocking me to others'. Pointing out my facial twitch to others in a degrading manner. Who does this? Pretends they are friends for over a year but tells others 'they have no clue who I am..' phones, e mails & more- you should see my extensive photo collection. LIES. Why I'm not sure, I was told 'I'm valuable in the industry as is my art.' I found this all out first hand & it's taken me a few weeks just to absorb.. I feel 'dirty 'for being friends now with this person. My trust is gone.. :(
I found out, I forgive faster than even I realize, forgive and forget so you don't waste one more second of life on parasites who prey on others. Don't let anyone drain your passion or energy... let it be fuel - let it make you stronger. Burn BRIGHTER!
YOU - you know who you are..
I know you read my blog & have been for a while.
You are forgiven.
How quick some can go from Hero to Zero, it's my own fault for ever putting anyone on a pedestal in the first place. I was spared even more bullshit by a brave woman who confronted me because she knew what was happening.
I know several women are now reading my blog.
Yes, he does know me, yes he pretended to like me', yes he sent me photos, yes he hinted... you know - the same shit you hear on a different day .
WOMEN WE have to support each other - MORE than ever!
The canabis industry is one women should be a part of and a focal point! Strong Men who are not intimidated by women support them, strong men are the only ones who can handle strong women. The companies which will succeed are ones with women on board, so far I'm pleased the way Canada is going & will be watching closely.
There are MANY in the industry making a positive difference to communities and more. Raising money & awareness and are truly GOOD people... They will rise and succeed faster! The world is tired of rich assholes' pushing their way into places they don't belong.
Women have the creativity, brains and more for the cannabis industry - I can't wait to watch them rise!
I will rise higher & faster! With love I can not fail.
When I say 'God has my back' I know it's a fact. :)
I literally prayed for resolution regarding this person & the next day I was contacted.
It was difficult but now I'm aware & stronger than ever & I made a new friend!
lol - who knew? Give thanks! Continue to LOVE!
RISE higher & faster with love.
Fate made us sisters.. Hearts made us friends.
WE ARE ALL SISTERS!
