Last Wednesday, March 8th, I was a panellist on a marijuana legalization episode for theZoomer — far from Toronto’s bail court. The other panellists were a venture capitalist, an addiction counsellor, a lawyer, and a licensed producer. And, less intimidating, a friendly face in the Princess of Pot: fellow activist and owner of Cannabis Culture, Jodie Emery.
As anyone who made it out to the 2017 M.O.M. Cup Saturday night show could tell you, Twelve High Chicks believes in unique entertainment. Notably, the cup was in one place and not a variety of locations. So instead of a cannabis celebrity headlining a dope-friendly dance party, Saturday featured a showcase of Vancouver — and notable Australian — talent. And what talent!
The Twelve High Chicks 2017 M.O.M. Cup went by in a blur of edification, entertainment, and pot smoke. Obviously no one could attend every single speaker, panel, and performance. Even though there were no overlapping panels, there were multiple rooms to visit. One of which hosted the Twelve Chicks to meet, and the other held the open Canadabs dab bars! So today we’ve got a recap for reference … and remembering.
A very big thank you to all of the competitors at the 2017 Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup. Without your marvellous companies, Canadians that can’t (or don’t want to) join the ACMPR have access to medical and recreational marijuana. And without your entries we literally couldn’t have held the cup! While every sample was beautifully representative of what Canadian weed be, there were only so many cups. Congratulations to the 2017 M.O.M. Cup Winners!
We’ve posted about the Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup platinum sponsors and gold sponsors on our site already. Their sponsorship is incredibly important. But there are so many M.O.M. Cup sponsors that we’ve mentioned on Social Media still to formally thank here.
This weekend wouldn’t be possible without the support of these wonderful companies!
Hey there, it’s Lillie, here to rep the fun side of activism: the steps forward in cannabis access that M.O.M.s provide!
The last few years of cannabis in Canada have seen the efforts of activists paying off massively. We’re still waiting for legalization, but the recommendations for it came through on schedule. While they may not be what we end up with, the Liberal government seems to be following through with this campaign promise. That our government would admit the damage prohibition does to society is a huge win for activism.
In Canada, M.O.M.s operate in a grey zone as access to both medical and recreational cannabis while we wait for legalization. But Canada isn’t the only country making moves to legalize medical marijuana or decriminalize or legalize recreational weed. So the Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup is bringing international guests: activist and advocate speakers and entertainers.
Of course M.O.M.s operate in the grey zone of Canadian cannabis. They’re a vital resource for patients who can’t otherwise access medical marijuana, but they’re also recreational. And for people who believe harmless, adult, recreational cannabis should be as available as alcohol. So the Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup has not just informed, intelligent speakers, we also have top-notch Canadian entertainers for your recreation!
M.O.M.s operate in the grey zone of Canadian cannabis. But they’re a vital resource for patients that can’t find doctors or growers, or are not satisfied with licensed producers. Well, Twelve High Chicks operates as an entertainment website. But we’re also advocates, long-time activists, and fighters for medical and recreational access. So we wouldn’t really be bringing you the Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup if there weren’t Twelve High Chicks Magazine speakers!
As each day passes, I make an effort to tell the ones I love that I love and care for them. Because I know one day that they will not be alive for me to do that anymore. When asked to write a spiritual piece, I thought loss and cannabis was a fitting subject given my circumstances and experiences around it.
M.O.M.s operate in the grey zone of Canadian cannabis. But they’re a vital resource for patients that can’t find doctors or growers, or are not satisfied with licensed producers. Our speakers understand the need to fight for access for everyone. That’s why the Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup Canadian speakers are lawyers and protesters, recreational advocates and medical activists, business owners and artists.
We’re really excited to work with everyone — sponsors, performers, and contributors — for next week’s Twelve High Chicks M.O.M. Cup! So excited, we’re sharing a little about some of them with you before the big weekend, February 24-26, 2016. Today we’d like to thank one of our gold M.O.M. Cup Sponsors: Vancouver Seed Bank.
