This New Show is All About Women and Weed
DateJuly 23, 2017
In hopes to “feminize” marijuana culture, Queens of the Stoned Age, a new series from Merry Jane and produced by Snoop Dogg, aims to shift the conversation to more accurately reflect those who use marijuana.
“Weed is a male-dominated culture, and it’s hard for women to find themselves represented in it,” Producer Tara Aquino tells Refinery29. “So this show is meant to be a symbol and empower women to come out and show that, look, there are successful women who smoke and who have weed as part of their daily life and are killing it in their respective industries.”
“We wanted to use weed as a jumping off point for conversations about bigger issues like sex and wellness and creativity and show how weed really affects and benefits all those things,” she adds.
