Breaking the Grass Ceiling by Ashley Picillo and Lauren Devine
Breaking the Grass Ceiling is a biographical collection featuring powerful, driven and courageous women who have been instrumental in paving the way into the cannabis industry for many—especially other women. Within these pages, 21 women share their triumphs, heartaches, and words of wisdom derived from their incredibly diverse experiences within the legal cannabis industry. These profiles reveal what happens when women persevere, battling old schools of thought in their quest for equality, respect, and a voice at the top. Representing the unique fields of cannabis consulting, technology, dispensary operations, human resources, cultivation, scientific research, law, infused products, policy, advocacy, and activism, these women have contributed years of pioneering efforts to the industry. Not only has their work helped shape the cannabis industry as it exists now, they have opened a door through which other women can follow and continue to build the industry into one with no ceiling at all. In the meantime, watch out for falling glass.
