Our favorite quote from Cecilia Mendes' interview about cannabis and motherhood:

Jeff: "Since coming out as St. Louis Stoner mom, have you dealt with stigma against? What kind of push back have you gotten?"

Cecilia: "Oh, a ton. I've had family members who didn't speak to me for months. I lost friends. I have friends who are in corporate positions who can now no longer publicly hang out with me. So there's definitely stigma, but I decided at the end of the day even though I felt that stigma, that that made what I was doing so much more important."
