Monique Dupree AKA ThaOriginalGata

talks medial cannabis


While in Las Vegas, NV for the MJBizCon2018, we were lucky enough to cross paths with our longtime friend, Monique Dupree a/k/a ThaOriginalGata.

Monique had some pretty significant surgical intervention last year and as part of her recovery, used cannabis products. Tinctures, edible/cookable oil, edibles and flower. She talks with us about how the stigma associated with cannabis kept her from initially embracing its use. But she has seen the light! Thank you so much for sharing your story and being our friend!
