Poll Context: The View host, Whoopi Goldberg’s has decided to enter the medicinal marijuana business. She had said she’d leave America if Donald Trump is elected president but maybe her weed business will keep her here after all. She announced Wednesday that she was partnering with Om Edibles founder Maya Elisabeth to roll out a series of new marijuana-infused products including a balm, a tincture, a bath soak and sipping chocolate. The Whoopi & Maya brand will be available to consumers in California who are legally licensed to purchase medical marijuana products.
Goldberg stated, “For me, I feel like if you don’t want to get high high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort,” she told Vanity Fair on Wednesday. “Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can’t smoke a joint and go to work.”
“This, you can put it in your purse,” she added. “You can put the rub on your lower stomach and lower back at work, and then when you get home you can get in the tub for a soak or make tea, and it allows you to continue to work throughout the day.” She joins hip-hop potheads Snoop Dogg and Wiz Khalifa as a famous black face of weed culture. “I think getting involved with the boutique industry from the ground floor is appealing to celebrities,”
So, will you be smoking Whoopi’s weed?
