A little bit of the tea spilled on this episode:

  • Social equity and giving due to the BIPOC, who built the cannabis industry into what it is today
  • How getting a DUI changed her life for the better
  • Laganja’s favorite cannabis products and strains

It’s no secret, RuPaul’s Drag Race is one of Shonitria’s favorite TV shows so you know we had to chitchat about Jay’s experience on the show and if she’d ever go back. She’s already performed her viral Lip Sync Assassin routine from RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars season 6 about 100 times (and counting). Yas, that’s a whole lot of death drops!

We also get real about the challenges she’s faced in the cannabis industry, and she provides advice for anyone considering working in cannabis. Y’all are gonna fall in love with Jay after this episode!
