My parents definitely weren't happy with me smoking pot at such a young age, but they were always aware that it was a little bit better for you than drinking. So being a stoner is honestly pretty wholesome to me. At 19 I moved to New York and I started dating a guy who didn't really like it.
He thought it made him paranoid or made him eat too much. He knew that I always had insecurities about my body, and struggled with eating disorders in the past; I guess he thought that it would make me feel bad. That was a moment of intense shame that I felt about smoking weed.
My entire time in New York I didn't smoke weed at all, and I think it was the unhealthiest I've ever been. I did all kinds of other drugs, like cocaine and Xanax. When that guy and I broke up, I moved back to L. I stopped doing all other drugs, got healthier, and felt a lot better with just having weed and nothing else. The weed store that I go to is run by a bunch of beautiful girls who are so sweet. It makes me so happy to go in there and see everyone living their happy lives. There's such a weird sexism that goes along with smoking, and it's just recently being taken away.
Smoking weed is such a male-dominated thing. I worked in a weed dispensary for a long time actually, and it was tough.

The female stoner is a multi-tasker that likes to take the edge off. Being a stoner was never a taboo to me; I've never been one to hide anything. I was definitely a wake-and-baker kind of girl, but I've become more of a 4: But, if I'm spending the whole day designing jewelry, I'm for sure stoned. I've had The Sweet Leaf Collection since day one, when we launched in A big diamond leaf necklace was one of the first pieces I wanted to make. Over the years, I've added the studs, the body chains, the hoops, anklets, clutches, backpacks, and fanny packs. I'll put that leaf anywhere and everywhere.
I can't really say that I've ever encountered any negativity toward my use of the leaf.
I mean, we're California girls—it's what we were raised around. The Sweet Leaf Collection has gained a really cute following. You'll find the most random girls that purchase it—very shy girls that don't even smoke pot. Rihanna wears a lot of my jewelry, which couldn't be more perfect. She's so fun to design and create custom pieces for. She's become my muse.
Smoking weed is dumb. People will bring their own baggage to your "no drinking" verbiage unless you are extremely specific about what you mean there. Jebus I liked that video very much. And people will have different reasons for wanting to use different substances. Sorry, you're not old enough to visit Leafly.
She brings out the bad girl side of me, and I bring out the gentle bohemian in her. She'll wear all of those edgier designers, and then after that, she'll come back to me for her hippy moment.
