Cannabis advocacy magazine Emerald Magazine published a feature piece on Laganja Estranja and her work towards normalizing minority communities like cannabis users in the mainstream. The piece explores Estranja’s childhood as a LGBTQ person in Texas and how that experience helps qualify her to advocate for the use of cannabis now.
With both the LGBT and the cannabis communities often seen in a negative light, it’s Jay’s hope to bring the two groups together in solidarity with “one wig, two heels, and one plant at a time.”
“I’d like to unite my brothers and sisters in education on this herb, and I’d like to show the other side how much fun we have in liberating this plant,” Jay said, raising his head high, channeling Laganja, “Girl, I spent a long weekend in the fields of the Emerald Triangle in Northern California, and let me tell you, those ladies got nothing on me. I’m their rep now, you listening?”
The Future of Laganja Estranja
Another topic explored extensively in this feature by Emerald Magazine is the future of Laganja Estranja. Beyond just cannabis, Estranja and even Jay Jackson, the person portraying Estranja, is a knowledgable and effective influencer.
“The future is endless!” [Jackson] exclaimed. “I dream of being a model, a photographer, dancer, director, hip-hop rapper – I want to do it all – in stilettos, baby! Can you just see a Cirque de Soleil extrvaGANJA in Vegas directed by none other than Laganja Estranja herself? “I can. And the plant will be beside me every dance step of the way!”
