She doesn't make pot-leaf doilies or anything (yet), but Cheryl Shuman, the self-proclaimed "Martha Stewart of Marijuana," is definitely bringing a more suburban mom image to our favorite herb. Shuman was recently on The Ricki Lake Show (which is still on?) talking about her struggles with ovarian cancer and her quest to make weed more adorable.
We're not sure what exactly makes Shuman the Martha Stewart of pot, though she does show off a display of Etsy-esque cannabis oils, sleek electronic cigarettes, and prettily packaged edibles.
But really, Martha Stewart went to prison. Is Martha Stewart Martha-Stewart-enough for such comparisons anymore? We feel high just thinking about this. Shuman does emulate the Queen of Craftiness where it most counts though: She's a marketing bad-ass, who has worked with famous people like, oh, Michael Jackson, former Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger, Julia Roberts, Madonna, and Steven Tyler.
And according to Johnny Green over at The Weed Blog, a reality TV show starring Shuman is in the works. For now the TV show is still a pipe dream, but, well, we expect it to be a hit.
