ZiFi Braves Exxxotica Denver

@Exxxotica

This weekend was the adult convention Exxxotica in Colorado. It was an intimate gathering of adult stars, webcam models, press, and fans. For a weekend we invaded Denver to create a tangible adult industry community to remind us all why we do what we do.

People bombard me with their questions about fun at these events and it drives me absolutely insane. I am blessed to have the career I have created after retiring from stripping. However, I also believe work when mixed with passion should be fun/enjoyable. Mainstream society has such a skewed view of the adult industry and the work that goes on to keep the adult world available to the general public. It only makes sense that we like to get together and mingle with others who understand our work lives.

Work is work, but if you are fulfilling your purpose it should be fun(no matter the industry).

Panda Pandamonium

PANDA is the Professional Adult Nightclub DJ Association(@PandaMembers1). They represent the best of the best when it comes to strip club industry DJs nationwide. The PANDA association is working to make the strip club industry a better place not only for DJs, but all strip club workers.

The PANDA association has created a national network of strip club DJs, who have never had the opportunity to network as they do now. With the powerful tool of the internet strip club DJs from all over have gotten the opportunity to connect with others, who can relate to the shoes they put on to go to work every night. With all the different markets and demographics of strip clubs this has proven to be a great tool enabling strip club DJs to gain information they would otherwise never get the chance to gain other than firsthand.

Dane Hansen(@ttbardj_lv), President of the board of directors of PANDA and Ilan Fong(@IlanFong), Secretary of the board of directors of the PANDA have been extremely willing to collaborate to create more positive exposure for the strip club industry. PANDA helps DJs do everything from find the top music of the week to find affordable healthcare(yes, healthcare!). Mainstream America may not be aware, but being a strip club DJ is a rare career few get the option of entertaining. Just as in any career/industry, being the best of the best takes passion and hard work. These men and a few women have worked incredibly hard to be where they are today.

Pandas from all over the nation will gather in Colorado April 23th for Pandamonium. Stay tuned for their updates for the year to come!

America’s Herbal Dilemma

@Native_Flowerz

Marijuana has made its way to mainstream American society’s attention. This time armed with more information, data, and research than previously during the baby boomer hippie counterculture era. Legal and medical marijuana surround Americans, even in more conservative states where marijuana is still frowned upon with felonies and many other consequences and/or rehabilitation programs. Nowadays, the medical benefits of marijuana are becoming well-known. Even enough to allow some incredibly ill children to live a full life, that they would otherwise be robbed of without medical marijuana(CBD). Legal now in four states Oregon, Colorado, Alaska, Washington and the District of Columbia and marijuana(or decriminalized marijuana) is available in 23 states and the District of Columbia. California state started this all in 1996.

As a native of Oregon and the Pacific Northwest, marijuana has been apart of my adult life from the beginning. It was a cash crop when I was growing up and it is almost apart of our culture here in Oregon. So, to see the nation more in “the know” is extremely refreshing. We are not all lazy stoners as many try to stigmatize us. We are just people. Shocking I know! How can we not be the evil lazy people the government has made us out to be?

Some of us are just medical marijuana patients not looking to get strung out on legal pharmaceuticals. Natural and organic versus made in a lab with unknown chemicals and fillers, this seems extremely logical. Avoiding fast food and other pollutants does not help anyone to be healthy if they are filling their body with pharmaceutical pollutants. Chemicals are just bad, a capitalized industry that aims to keep you a customer.

“In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. For example, eating 10 raw potatoes can result in a toxic response. By comparison, it is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man. By any measure of rational analysis marijuana can be safely used within the supervised routine of medical care.” ~Francis Young [DEA Administrative Law Judge – 1988]

Marijuana is an herb, just as tea. Some days I drink tea, some days I drink coffee. This is no different than a glass of wine after work versus smoking a joint after work. Different strokes for different folks. Prohibition has never been a successful tactic. Yet, we still utilize it as a capitalist government industry.

Legalization of marijuana has had some kinks, example Washington state, but it has had some success helping state economies as well, example Colorado. After the war on drugs no longer involves marijuana then we will be able to focus more on legalization and taxes, rather than courts, fines, and jail time. Make money rather than spend money.

“Why is marijuana against the law? It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit . . . unnatural?”  ~Bill Hicks

Medical marijuana seemed to be the best middle ground for those of us looking for more than recreational use, without jail time or other life-long consequences. I speak from personal experience:  in Oregon I was caught with marijuana. Due to it being in hash form(manufactured), I am now a felon for life. Yes for marijuana, a plant. Forever, people look at me differently when I fill out applications at social institutions like my condo building and job applications/licenses, etc. In Oregon people tend to look at me with sympathy. However, in Texas they stared at me and said I would still be in jail if I had been caught in Texas. Reality is relative. Yet, it is a stigma marijuana users nationwide risk without the ability to obtain medical or legal use of marijuana.

Marijuana growers and dispensaries have the difficult job of walking the fine lines the government draws out state by state. Varying rules and regulations on medical marijuana depend on state laws. However, federal law trumps state law, so there is a forever loophole in medical and legal marijuana. The federal government retains the right to seize assets of those involved in drug cases, therefore growers and dispensaries have the most on the line for the freedom of us all.

Why such a stink about a plant (pun intended)? So many people are involved in consensual crimes within the United States every year. Can we stop prosecuting marijuana users and growers to focus on hard drugs or other social issues?
