Stoners In Stilettos?

By: Jade Jorda


We, as Californians, are well accustomed to intermingling with potheads on a daily basis. We recognize Mary Jane lovers amongst different groups of people, such as our friends, and occasionally, within our family. Some use it recreationally and some use it medically. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if you knew someone who possesses a "club card". Furthermore, I wouldn't be surprised if you've asked them to... you know... "smoke me out, man".

Today, it is not uncommon to drive by a smoke shop selling an array of paraphernalia: pipes, bongs, vaporizers, etc.... all of which are dedicated to marijuana use. Even popular places visited by tourists like Melrose Ave., Venice Boardwalk, Abbot Kinney, host either smoke shops or Medical Cannabis clubs and sometimes both. What has particularly desensitized people to marijuana use is... you've guessed it: Fashion.

There have been few occasions, especially over the past year, that the notorious pot leaf has taken over the runway. Designers such Sonia Rykiel, Lucien Pellat Finet or Gerlan Jean have emblazed a weed leaf on some of their garments. Take a look.
