In 2018, Lizzie Post, great-great granddaughter of Emily Post, reached out to interview me for her book Higher Etiquette. While I didn’t know who Emily Post was when Lizzie first called, once I googled her, I was highly honored to contribute to (what I thought was) such a ground breaking book. Lizzie and I spent many hours discussing cannabis, etiquette and this wild new world of weed, via phone as she was in Vermont, and I in NorCal. So when Lizzie was coming out for her book tour, she said “we gotta smoke a joint!” And I said, “we gotta throw a party,” and thus the seed for my High Society concept was planted. I just HAD to throw this party because I knew none of the book stores or venues hosting Lizzie on her book tour would allow cannabis consumption. And HOW can you talk about weed in places where you can’t consume it?! I won’t stand for that. So, I put together an event around the Higher Etiquette book launch and hosting Lizzie Post, where consumption would not only be allowed, but encouraged with quality education and offerings from curated brands. It turned into an epic female focused extravaganza celebrating cannabis, women, etiquette, medicine, entrepreneurship, literature and this modern life. Everyone left with one of my famous gift bags, which featured hardcover copy of the book and a curated selection of the best cannabis of NorCal.
