A lot of people are surprised to learn this because nothing about my personality suggests this, but I was a sorority girl in college. We organized themed socials where we would dress up to drink cheap beer in a dirty frat house basement. Today, as an almost-30-year-old who has no desire to drink alcohol or hang out in spaces where I have to ask someone to watch my drink when I go to the bathroom, that sounds like my literal worst nightmare.
However, I do miss the costume parties with my girlfriends and wish there were more opportunities to do stuff like that for adults who favor cannabis over alcohol. That’s where Tokeativity comes in.
Tokeativity is a movement that started in Portland in 2016 with an intention to nurture a safe space for women to connect, learn and create meaningful experiences around cannabis. They connect women of all ages by hosting events and curating focused experiences such as cannabis socials, workshops, networking, panels, films, guest artists and more. They have chapters all over the world, including one that began in Denver last month.
Lisa Snyder is the Co-Founder & Chief Innovation Officer of Tokeativity, The Global Feminist Community for Active Cannabis Culture.
