Susan has written product reviews, people profiles and covering marijuana events and issues since 2013. Her focus of product reviews are body care products and hemp food and clothing. Coverage includes the first recreational sale of January 1 2014, social consumption after legalization, the 15 year history of 4/20 on CU Boulder campus and smoking bus tour of Denver.

Susan started writing  Ask The Cannabist the marijuana advice column  with the launch of The Cannabist site in January 2014. Previous to The Cannabist, Susan wrote the marijuana advice column, Ask Lady Cannabis for The Hemp Connoisseur.  The inspiration for the advice column was a synthesis of Susan’s social-science degree from University of Colorado-Boulder and her experience in cannabis culture.

In 2015, Susan began writing The Cannabist social column, High Society, detailing the who’s who of cannabis society at events.  Her articles have been published by The Cannabist, The Hemp Connoisseur, Ladybud Magazine, Freedom Leaf, and Elephant Journal.

    Dear Susan

    Is it possible to purchase marijuana or marijuana edibles from a site in Colorado and have it shipped to Pennsylvania? I am a 54 year old marijuana user and have great difficulty finding the product in my area without having to go into some crime-infested area. I think what you are doing is truly wonderful. keep up the great work.

    Hi Susan,

    First, may I congratulate you on your efforts to promote reason and legitimacy for this industry in the state of Colorado. Hopefully one day your efforts will lead to a rational and intelligent discussion of these issues nationwide.

    My other reason for contacting you is to find out if you can assist me in offering my services to retail establishments and/or dispensaries in your state. I am a graphic designer with over three decades of experience in my field, and unlike many of my fellow designers I have extensive experience designing collateral materials, corporate identity pieces, and packaging for growers and dispensaries in the state of Washington.

    I was not sure who to contact to assist this growing industry in need of sophisticated professional materials for retail presentation, but thought that you may be able to point me in the right direction. I can provide visual backup of past pieces to anyone requesting it.

    Any assistance that you can provide in placing me in contact with businesses in need of a professional approach to the design of their identity pieces or packaging on a freelance basis would be most appreciated.

    Best regards,
