I just got back from the Women Grow Leadership Summit in Denver, Colorado. A gathering of hundreds of women working in the cannabis industry, the conference blew my mind, on multiple levels. It was amazing to see so many women gathered in one place to speak about this new, booming industry. It was also fascinating to be in an environment where recreational use was legal, and where a networking event included women not just sipping Pinot Grigio, but vaping Gorilla Glue. But I expected all of that, in a way. What I didn't expect — but should have — was how much marijuana jewelry and accessories I would see women rocking. It seemed like everyone had a piece of subtle, feminine marijuana bling.
Something women talked a lot about at the conference was the importance of "coming out" as a cannabis user. Many legalization advocates believe it's crucial that people — perhaps young, professional women especially — try to be more open about the role cannabis plays in their lives. Until we all come out of the "green closet," many activists argue, marijuana will always be prohibited.
If you're looking to be more open about your own cannabis use — and enjoy online shopping — then buying some marijuana jewelry or a pro-legalization tee shirt might actually be a good place to start. Sure, it's not possible for everyone to be open about their cannabis use (especially at the office) but wearing or decorating with any of the stoner accessories below is a great way to spark the conversation, if you catch my drift.
As a vegan, I especially like this one, even if it might be meant as a joke against me.
Subtle enough that everyone will comment when they notice this colorful decorative pillow.
This is just so cute. I bet your parents wouldn't even notice this — but if they do, it might be a great opener for a conversation about legalization.
I don't think she would approve, but if you are a Hillary supporter, this might be one way to help her appeal to younger voters?
It's 4:20 somewhere ... like, on your chest.
Combine your two great loves in one great tank.
This necklace is a great middle finger to the government — a leaf made out of a dollar bill by an artist in London? Yes please.
For the Bernie supporters out there, this one is a winner. After all, the candidate says on his website himself that he "supports medical marijuana and the decriminalization of recreational marijuana, and has said that he supports the right of states to opt for full legalization".

Remind people that this is a plant we're criminalizing, after all.
This is just so cute. Each one is handmade and only $14, which makes no sense but is awesome.
Enjoy the delayed reactions of stoners and sober people alike with this slow burn of a tee.
For the person who prides themselves on their roll, this seems like the perfect gift.
OK, so this pillow is probably the least subtle or classy thing on here, but it was just too cool not to include.
A cool variation of the THC molecule necklace, this piece combines the cannabis compounds (THC, CBN, CBD CBC and CBG) into one rad fashion statement.
