CHEEBA GIRL GOES FROM ART TO REAL
Cheeba magazine is just getting started with illustrations of sexy women drawn as cannabis. But this time we are going to take it a step further.
Here’s the plan
We want to make Cheeba Girl Magazine real as possible and we knew of a body paint artist that could work magic.
One of the best body paint artists in Baltimore Maryland Mandy Gibson is very talented in horror FX as well as many other art forms. We’ve actually had a chance to work with her in the 2018 Awesome Con in Washington D.C.
Unfortunately, she was not about to body paint this time, but she did hip us to another body paint artist that is right up our alley.
Meet Jessica Wagner
Body paint Artist and Cannabis lover. Though her specialty is horrifying body paint art, she is very versatile in other genres. Before we got started I knew that there had to be a focal point of the whole body art and that’s a headpiece made of cannabis in the shape of an afro.
The next step was to find a model to transform into the first Cheeba Girl, for that we chose Emily Jade who has experience in body paint modeling. S we set a production date for July 16th and a few things went wrong. The photographer Rachel became ill and had to be taken to the hospital, we all prayed for her that night she would make a healthy recovery.
The good thing was Jessica knew of another photographer that was willing to fill in for Rachel. We were all set for the beginning of the transformation
- The end result came out stunning, organic, highly sexy, and creative.
Princess of Cannabis Karma Brings Good Vibes to Washington DC
Princess is dedicated to the cannabis community of Washington, DC. After recognizing her passion for making marijuana more accessible, she decided to start Cannabis Karma in 2016.
Now, Cannabis Karma holds monthly events dedicated to spreading cannabis awareness to the community in Washington DC. They also offer consulting and event planning services.
Thankfully, Princess was kind enough to sit down with us and discuss her future plans and what Cannabis Karma has in store.
Providing Space for Students and Growers
At Cannabis Karma, people can enjoy space for their plants and participate in weekly events designed to educate them about marijuana. Through this opportunity, they provide a safe, relaxed environment where people can feel welcome and free to explore something that was once taboo and misunderstood.
By breaking down barriers and allowing people the opportunity to normalize cannabis and learn in a supportive surrounding, Princess hopes to see more people have access to a relationship with marijuana.
Monthly Grow Workshop
Princess let us know that every Saturday, Cannabis Karma provides students with a grow class covering the topics of plant genetics, water pH, and other subjects that will help them learn the fundamentals of growing their own cannabis.
This resource can provide so many people with the ability to grow their own medicine or simply produce high-quality cannabis for personal use. In addition, growing cannabis can be an incredibly therapeutic and calming activity, which is something that everyone could use a little more of these days.
The National Cannabis Festival
As a sponsor for the National Cannabis Festival, Cannabis Karma is reaching out to the community and helping normalize marijuana use. Since 2015, this event has provided people the chance to not only learn about cannabis but have fun doing it.
Events like these and Princess’s work are crucial in de-stigmatizing cannabis and helping people see it as the plant that it is.
This year, the National Cannabis Festival is on April 23, 2022. Click here if you want to buy tickets to this year’s event.
Consulting and Event Services for Cannabis Businesses
From start to finish, Cannabis Karma will work with you to make sure that everything is taken care of so that you can relax and enjoy your event.

Final Word: Cannabis Karma is Changing the Stigma
People like Princess are working hard to change the stigma around cannabis and those who use it. By providing a safe and accessible space for people to learn about and explore cannabis, she’s helping to create a more positive image for the plant and those who use it.

Initiative 71: The Benefits for D.C. Residents
On November 4, 2014, Washington D.C. residents voted in favor of Initiative 71 – the Marijuana Legalization Initiative. Under this measure, the government’s tight grip on marijuana has loosened, freeing many D.C. residents from an inability to enjoy cannabis.
This has been huge for the residents of D.C. and finally allows us to grow our own plants and move forward from the disparaging war on drugs. Here are some benefits of Initiative 71 that D.C. residents can finally take advantage of.
You Can Grow up to Six Plants
Under the new law, adults 21 and older can cultivate up to six marijuana plants, with three being mature, in their residences. This is a great way to save cash if you enjoy smoking marijuana recreationally, as buying from a dispensary can get expensive. It also ensures you can always have a supply on hand and don’t have to worry about running out.
Not only that, but with the freedom to grow our marijuana, we can finally start to create our own strains and experiment with different cultivation methods. This has been illegal in the past and not available to D.C. residents.
Initiative 71 is especially beneficial for those using marijuana for therapeutic purposes. They can now grow their supply and not worry about finding a particular strain or having to leave their home.
You Can Possess up to Two Ounces
Another benefit of Initiative 71 is that it allows adults to share marijuana with other adults. Before, this could result in hefty fines and even jail time, leaving cannabis enthusiasts frequently paranoid and misunderstood.
Now, adults can freely share marijuana with other adults if they are not selling it.
An Emerging Gifting Community
Although Initiative 71 has provided several benefits, it still does not allow for the sale of marijuana. As a result, to exchange marijuana, dispensaries and other businesses have emerged that operate as “gifting communities.” Several companies also work using a donation-based system.
These businesses allow adults to exchange marijuana as a gift for purchasing other goods and services without the exchange considered a sale. Although this may seem confusing, this loophole enables us to enjoy marijuana without breaking the law.
With this gray area comes some rules, however. First, you should never sell the marijuana you grow from your plants, as this is still technically illegal.
When visiting a dispensary, always stay courteous and don’t ask to purchase marijuana. Doing so can result in the store getting in trouble. For years, police have tried to shut down dispensaries that operate on donations or use gifting to exchange marijuana, but they are still open as of now.
Initiative 71 has provided many benefits for D.C. residents and has finally allowed us to enjoy marijuana without fear of breaking the law. With the ability to grow our own plants and share marijuana with other adults, we can finally start to experience all that cannabis offers.
However, we still need to be careful and mindful of the rules, as breaking them can still result in penalties. But all in all, Initiative 71 has been a significant step forward in legalizing mariju

VOTE YES QUESTION 4: LEGALIZATION OF RECREATIONAL MARIJUANA IN MARYLAND
Vote Yes on Question 4: Legalizing Recreational Marijuana in Maryland
On November 8th, Maryland voters will have the opportunity to vote on Question 4, which proposes legalizing recreational marijuana in the state. If passed, the measure would allow adults over 21 to possess up to 1.5 ounces of marijuana or up to two marijuana plants starting on July 1st, 2023.
In addition, larger amounts of up to 2.5 ounces would only be punishable by a civil fine. This is an important step forward for Maryland, and we urge everyone to vote Yes on Question 4.
Here’s why you should consider voting yes on Question 4, and legalizing recreational marijuana in Maryland.
Marijuana Prohibition Unfairly Targets Minority Communities
Marijuana prohibition has profoundly and disproportionately impacted minority communities in Maryland. For example, incarceration rates for drug charges are six times higher for African Americans than whites. A major reason for this is the war on drugs.
By legalizing Question 4, decriminalization will allow police officers to focus on more serious crimes. Without the burden of enforcing marijuana prohibition, our police officers can keep our communities safe in more effective and helpful ways.
It Will Generate Revenue for the State
Marijuana legalization would generate revenue for the state through taxation. States that have legalized marijuana have seen a significant increase in tax revenue, which can be used to fund critical public services like education and infrastructure. In Colorado, for example, marijuana tax revenue was over $423 million in 2021. If Maryland were to generate a similar amount of tax revenue, it would significantly boost the state budget.
Legalization would also stimulate the Maryland economy by creating additional jobs, like delivery drivers and dispensary workers. Creating opportunities for small businesses is an integral part of economic growth, and the cannabis industry is a great way to do that.
Marijuana Legalization Will Allow Maryland to Regulate the Industry
If Question 4 passes, Maryland can create a system to license and regulate the marijuana industry. This will create jobs and economic opportunities for Marylanders while ensuring that the marijuana sold in the state is safe and high-quality.
Without regulation, the marijuana industry is controlled by the black market, which is unsafe and unreliable. By voting yes on Question 4, you can help make sure that the marijuana industry in Maryland is safe and well-regulated.
Marijuana Legalization is Good for Public Health
Despite the myths about marijuana, it’s far safer than other substances like alcohol and prescription medications. In addition, marijuana has many medical applications that can benefit patients with various conditions.
Pain relief is one of the top reasons people use marijuana, and it is far better for daily use than many prescription painkillers.
In short, marijuana legalization is good for public health and will allow many to safely and effectively treat their health conditions. In addition, it will generate revenue for Maryland and create jobs. And it will help end some of the unfair targeting of minority communities by the police.
At Cheeba Magazine, we urge you to vote yes on Question 4 on election day and legalize recreational marijuana in Maryland. If you’re interested in learning more about Question 4 and how you can vote, check out the Yes on 4 campaign today.
