[Canniseur: This pageant is clearly run by a sexist, homophobe, but he doesn’t seem completely lost. He’s just ignorant on the spectrum of beauty. He’s myopic in his vision and we need to show him the way. We should all message him, letting him know the world has changed.]
While the site says “Miss Marijuana provides an equal opportunity for any woman interested”, the guidelines exclude anyone married or gender non-conforming.
A new North American beauty pageant targeting the cannabis industry has just opened for applications—but only for “unwed” and “natural born” females between the ages 18 to 30.
And its founder thinks it’s going to be huge.
According to the official site, Miss Marijuana, or Miss MJ, is “the type of girl all the guys want, and all the girls want to be friends with” and the platform “gives you the opportunity to be the activist you’ve always dreamed of.”
Up for grabs is the crown and title of Miss Marijuana, $25,000, and a car—but not the branded Jeep Rubicon posted on the site, because that’s just to show applicants what a car looks like.
If accepted, contestants will upload a profile to be digitally polled by the general public. The online voting will take place for six to seven weeks and the 53 women with the highest votes—one for each American state and one from Canada—will then proceed to the final contest in Los Vegas, Nevada. The finale will include one “personal interview question”, and two catwalks—in a swimsuit and an evening gown.
