The self proclaimed “Sativa Diva” joins Jonathan this week, and shares a funny anecdote about how she initially discovered cannabis use as a creative tool, which landed her a highly selective appointment as a U.S. Presidential Scholar of the Arts. In addition, she also talks about using cannabis for medicinal purposes after suffering an injury in college. The two discuss how the character of Laganja Estranja came to be, and how she has successfully expressed femininity in a stigma ridden, gender normative society. Laganja discusses how she is using her platform to spread messages about cannabis, particularly related to race and social justice issues. She also shares exciting upcoming projects, which include a movie, television series, and an album!
