"A lot of folks were unaware" discussing cannabis amnesty & more with Reena Rampersad



For our 23rd episode I was so thrilled to finally meet our fellow Budsista and renown legacy cannabis activist Reena Rampersad that we had to spend at least a full 30 minutes just to sesh and catch up BEFORE we even started recording. Reena is a restauranteur, infused dining chef, cannabis event producer and long-time cannabis educator based in Hamilton Ontario.


You’ll hear about the deep cultural ties Reena has to the ganja community beginning with her own family, ultimately intertwining her ganja culture to produce such amazing events such as the legendary Hamilton #cannacrawl.


We also learn why Reena is so passionate about cannabis amnesty as she highlights for our listeners the early struggles and triumphs of pioneers who’ve inspired her such as the first Black-owned federally licensed cannabis cultivation company owner Ashley Athill and cannabis activist and lawyer Annamaria Enenajor.


I’m overjoyed our listeners get to learn about the cannabis journey of High Society Supper Club’s Reena Rampersad, producer of such amazing events as the Hamilton CannaCrawl. She's also worked with the Organja Society & the Campaign for Cannabis Amnesty.
