WATCH: Stormy Simon on Into The Weeds
In a published blog post written for Getintotheweeds.com, Rispin had this to say about the interview; “We interviewed Stormy at the High Times booth amongst the vendors. It was early enough that the crowds were still thin enough to get an awesome interview with someone I now consider to be a good friend. Again, I don’t want to ruin the episode, but man, what a story she has. She’s also super sexy, wise, humble, and for someone I feel has enough money to vanish, she doesn’t seem to give a fuck about stature unless you’re genuine. At one point in the interview, I asked how she knew Steven Tyler of Aerosmith and she replied, “because I Damn well made sure I knew Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.” I loved this. Stormy is someone everyone should want to be around.”
