Ms. Lauren Marie, also known as—The Lauren Marie Show, is quickly becoming a recognizable name within the cannabis community; so much so that many fake or fraudulent accounts—bearing her name and likenesses—are being created by her fans every single day on Instagram.
Marie’s slim and tender shaped physique, oftentimes wrapped in gorgeous grey clouds of reefer smoke, coupled with her young and extremely attractive facial appearance—caught the attention of The Ganja Girls, the fastest growing marijuana centric entertainment online brand—dedicated to raising the general public’s awareness of just how normal the use of recreational and medical marijuana is; and ever since then, The Lauren Marie Show has blossomed at the forefront—of the 100 billion dollars a year marijuana industry.
I got a chance to kick it with the exceptionally fine and sexy—Ms. Lauren Marie—and this is what she had to say about life and death, her most memorable modeling moment, and how she overcame her addiction to Xanax.
ZT: Growing up, who were some of your influences?
LM: I would say my father and my brother influenced me greatly, and I can honestly say—they were, and still are my support system. They raised me to become the woman that I am today; and besides them—I would say Biggie.
ZT: Which famous person do people say you look like the most?
LM: I don’t think I resemble any famous person (laughs); and I’ve been told that I have my own style—basically, I’m one of a kind.
ZT: What’s the greatest obstacle you had to overcome and how did you overcome it?
LM: My addiction to Xanax was the greatest obstacle I had to overcome. I didn’t care about anything; I just wanted to get wasted and party every night, and because of that—I got arrested when I was 18 years old—for 2 counts of assault and 2 counts of robbery. Of course, I was high on Xanax at the time—so the court system wanted to put me into a rehabilitation program. At first, I wasn’t going to do it; I wanted to take the year in jail—but my father talked me out of it. He told me to use the program to get clean, and I will always be grateful to him for giving me that wise advice. My dad is the reason why I’m still here, and truthfully, I would not have overcome my addiction to Xanax without him.
ZT: What’s the worst advice anyone has ever given you?
LM: Someone told me once that it matters what people think. That’s by far, one of the worst advice I’ve been told because people’s opinions do not, and I emphasize—DO NOT—define you! Never forget that.
ZT: What would you say is your greatest accomplishment?
LM: Becoming the woman I am today is by far my greatest accomplishment. Because if you knew anything about me, you would know that there were times—when I felt too weak to live. It was as if the world was against me—especially after my best friend committed suicide. It hurts every time I think about it—but he left me here—and I can remember once upon a time—he talked me out of committing suicide; and if you said that, ‘I was an emotional wreck after his death’—I would agree with you 100 percent, and me being addicted to Xanax didn’t make my life any easier. It drove me insane, my emotions were all over the place, and I can honestly say that—me being here today—is my greatest accomplishment. It took a lot of perseverance—but I did it, and I’ve noticed that—when terrible situations occurred in my life—those situations made me stronger.
ZT: What’s your motto or life advice that you live by?
LM: Don’t judge someone simply because they sin differently then you do.
ZT: What’s your most memorable marijuana modeling moment?
LM: One of the first photo-shoots; I took a picture with a little less clothes than usual (smiles). I was with my best friend Kelsey (@Queen_Lacheifaa); she’s also well known on Instagram. That night, we accidentally smoked an entire bag of weed while taking videos and selfies. When we realized that our weed bag was empty—we laughed out loud. It’s funny because—we looked at each other and kinda knew that we had to go and re-up. My bestfriend is awesome; she has a lot to do with me being comfortable enough to take the pics I do. It was definitely a day and night experience that we will always remember for a long time.
ZT: What are your thoughts on Bob Marley’s quote—“Herb is the healing of a nation, alcohol is the destruction?”
LM: I totally agree with him 100 percent; and any day of the week—I would rather smoke bud at home, while eating pizza and watching Netflix—rather than getting sloppy drunk. I mean—to each your own, right? Alcohol might be your thing to do, but it’s definitely not my thing.
ZT: What advice would you give to an aspiring marijuana model?
LM: Be prepared to be judged by people that know nothing about you—besides what they see on your Instagram page, and don’t let closed minded people get to you—always remember that you are beautiful.
ZT: Years from now, when people talk about The Lauren Marie Show, what will they say?
LM: That The Lauren Marie Show was their favorite show to watch.
ZT: What’s your favorite word and why?
LM: I would say—love. For such a strong word, it’s thrown around so easily, and I believe people should cherish it more.
ZT: How can people get in contact with you?
LM: For general inquiries, people can contact me on my Instagram page @the_laurenmarie_show; and we can take it from there; or they can watch the show live at ganjagirls.me/the_laurenmarie_show.
ZT: Thanks for a great interview, and as an honored guest, is there anything else you would like to say?
LM: Stay tuned lovers, I’m just getting started.
