We must face the facts, smoking weed doesn’t shock anyone anymore. Our parents were smoking in the seventies and the world is beginning to understand that this plant has undeniable therapeutic virtues other than to smash your brain. However, it is well to be baked which will be discussed in this article, particularly about space cakes. The last time I ate one, it’s my friend Flo, who had prepared it, and it was pretty ... intense. I must say that the guy had not skimped on the dosage, and I took a good amount. But rather than tell you my life, I’ll introduce you Watermelon, the woman of your dreams, the one that takes you to seventh heaven in your stone nights. Genuine Swiss Army Knife version THC activist, aswell cannabis picture model, as TV presenter and especially confectionery specializing in grass youth, her cookies are eaten by the lucky stoners on the four corners of Vancouver. Her nickname was earned by selling slices of watermelon on nude beaches, and if the government tried many times to put his hands on it, her eyes and his sensual voice have always helped her out . If medicated weed is legal in Colombia Columbia, no legislation specifies that it’s right to sell space cookies naked on the beach. Here is one of many reasons why it is good to live in Vancouver BC.
J / Present yourself to our readers.
W / Well my real name is Mary jane. But nobody calls me like that. The law does. I mean when I go to court. Everybody else calls me Watermelon. It’s kind of funny because Mary Jane.... You know, it is just because my mother is Mary, and my grand Ma is Jane, so... I live in Vancouver BC.
J / Why Watermelon ?
W / I sell Watermelon slices on a beach which is a clothing optionnal beach here in Vancouver near the University. A lot of people go naked down there. So I became actually very famous for being the watermelon girl. I’m doing it since 19 years, and people just call me like that since then. I turned 40 this year, it’s a hard land- mark for women. Well but thanks to Marijuana and Watermelon, it has kept me young and sexy.
J / When did you smoke your first spliff and where did this passion come from ?
W / I had older sisters. So I probably smoke when I was young, like 12 or 13. But I didn’t really got into marijuana. I was more into psychedelics when I was a young kid. I loved mushrooms and LSD. But in my 20’s, I began to love Marijuana and became a really heavy pot smoker. Now I even quit drinking alcohol and I only smoke marijuana primarly. My one Vice. i really love red wine, so I took a year off drinking. I’m not a very good grower, but in the kitchen it’s different. I use ganja as a spice. I treat marijuana as a vegetable or a herb. My mom grows marijuana, she has a medical licence. My real domain is the kitchen.
J / Tell us a bit more about your bakery, what are the different space cakes you purpose ?
W / I have a private bakery. We make always gingersnaps cookies. It’s my sgnature cookie. I make them, and a week later, they taste better. We also do Rhum resin balls, budder tarts, wacky taffy, medical margaritas... All with funny names. We always have them in store. But I do lots of other stuff. For example I use the fat in salmon so as to convert cannabis, I make also canna burgers... You get absolutly high from this. Marijuana bacon is also awesome, it’s my most popular cooking show. I grind marijuana, put it in a salt shaker, putting it over the bacon while cooking. The fat in the bacon converts the cannabis and makes you quite stoned. I really use it like a spice. It taste like it should be on it.
J /Do you have a recipy to share with us ?
W / My concept is, some of the people who need marijuana the most in our society are maybe more elderly people. So, I just made some scrumble eggs and putted some butter in a pan, and just as any other herb, I putted some marijuana and crack my eggs. And bingo ! You have some cannabis infused eggs from which I gonna get quite stoned. Sometimes I just put marijuana butter on toast. I really believe the elderly people are the people who need marijuana medecine the most. They have been intoxicated their whole life with pills and cigarettes, and marijuana is probably the best medecine for them. But they are also the most influenced by the propaganda against it. So I’m trying to break that barrier and also offer simple recipes they can use. I make marijuana salmon and give it to my old cat, and he is much better the next day. Did you know mariajuana was the number 1 sativa used in animal medecine. Over 60% all animal medecines are sativa based. So mariajuana is the world’s best medecine in the world. It explains why people wants it to be illegal because how can you make profit if medecine is green weed that grows everywhere ? So before you had to convince people that it was bad, that your daughters are gonna fuck black man or have sex with a jazz musician if she smokes pott. But those days are over. If you are politician or whatever, you can’t tell you are really against it, because nobody wants prohibition anymore.
J / In 2001, you have been arrested on this clothing optionnal beach, explain us how it happened and ended ?
W / I was already working since 8 years and they send undercover officers there. They came to buy cookies from me and brought me to the court. But they charged me with the wrong thing. So I was charged three times. And I was acquited all three times. Once on the technicality and twice because they charged me with the wrong thing. And it’s good like that, because our justice has to keep it’s money for sophisticated criminals. What happens is that the world is getting more and more sophisticated and it’s not a 1970’s Starsky and Hutch episode anymore. The new criminals are trafficking humans, true criminals. And if the justice is putting all it’s time and money for potheads, it’s not the good solution.
J / Do you think the world would be better if everybody would smoke weed ?
W / No, I don’t think everybody should smoke weed. But I think everybody should see marijuana the same way people see wine. Life holds a lot of chapters. You don’t need to smoke pott your whole life, but you can smoke during a chapter of your life, dealing with an hillness or stress, were marijuana might work for you. And it may not work for you. And that’s ok. If that doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t mean people should go to jail. Because it works for them! It may work for you one day. They are a lot of hillness today, and marijuana can be your best friend. Marijuana can be very potent when you convert it. But I don’t think the whole world needs to smoke it, accept it ...
J / What’s your favorite ganja ?
W / Oh, everyday it changes a little bit. There is weed I like to smoke in the morning and weed I smoke later. I love that blueberry a lot. Sativa sometimes and also Indica. I can’t say I have a favourite, I love marijuana. All of them.
