Whoopi Goldberg and her business partner Maya Elisabeth are shuttering their cannabis brand, Whoopi & Maya, after four years. And were told it all went up in smoke because of a rift between the pair.
Board member and High Times veteran Rick Cusick told us, In the last few months, Whoopi and Maya wanted a divorce, and the board had worked very hard to try and come up with some proposals but we couldnt get both principals to agree.
He said the board thought they had found a win-win solution to preserve the company, but that Goldberg then sent an e-mail last week saying that she was stepping down. Cusick said that sent the company reeling. But, Were very proud of what we did. Whoopi was brave when she came in to the cannabis space before a raft of celebs followed.

You got the stupids real bad when you cant make money selling pot.
Thats nails it!
Perhaps users were afraid that use of this particular strain would make them as stupid and repulsive as Whoopie??
The way it’s described is that it isn’t like smoking a joint. It’s something you can do to get rid of discomfort, and not get “high-high”, which is probably why it didn’t do that good. I tried marijuana once many years ago. I was never a smoker to begin with, and didn’t like it. I don’t think people are willing to pay for a product that isn’t going to get them “high-high.”
Yup. You tend to smoke up the profits.
Dave’s not here.
LOL. Spot on. Thanks for morning chuckle.
Next we will be told this is because “white man bad”, in addition to it being Trump’s fault.
How do you mess up Weed?
So, Whoopi is a drug dealer. It does not surprise me.
You decide your weed is better than everyone else’s. And you charge too much for it.
It is not cheap to produce and get licenses for. Since it is inhaled into your body, there are very strict measures on its production—the same way that distillers have to meet health and content standards.
I am sure Whoopi thought it would be a slam dunk. But weed heads are discerning.
It ain’t gonna slow Snoop Dawg and Martha down from expanding their smoke filled careers.
Folks here would probably not be shocked to learn that stoners dont run pot businesses well
I have watched with my own eyes 25 year old kids in Oregon and NorCal with an opportunity to just work leisurely 7-8 months a year and make 2-300,000 for their efforts
Not fully exploit the green house or stay on top of feeding or watering or maintain trimming or vegetation cycle etc
Just simple get off your ass and devote 2-4 hours a days work
The real work is harvest when you can pay for helpers ....100/day to trim bud
I would think damn I wish wed had this opportunity in the late 70s
Most successful pot biz folks dont stay high
The old saying, don’t get high on your own suppy...applies?
Growing high end weed is not easy
Anyone can grow seeded dirt weed yes but no one will buy it not since the 70s
Weed today is assayed for THC content
You cant just claim it
And folks like different strains
Most cultivators advertise the strength of their strains and mumbo jumbo about what it does for you
No question though sativa is an up high and was what most Americans over 55 remember
Indica and Hybrids are more could and sleepy highs
If that makes any sense
Even I could discern that in around 1976 when I first saw seedless indica marijuana
I will tell anyone
Dont stay high all day
Life passes folks by
I have seen high energy folks capable of smoking all day but not me
Which is why I quit smoking long ago
Sometimes I miss it...For sex especially
