14. Young, Female and Working in Weed: One Woman's Perspective

What's it like to be a woman working in the cannabis industry? This week Hayley spends the entire episode talking to Victoria Arana, who she first met when researching a story for VICE. Arana is an Echo Park native who got a job at a dispensary when she was 18. Since then, she's seen all sorts of mistreatment - from crazy amounts of unpaid overtime, to confiscated tips and sexual harassment. At 22, she is now a seasoned budtender with plans to uproot to UC Davis, study agriculture, and start her own (non-weed) farm.
