Lunch with Whoopi Goldberg

The Social Media Unicorns sat down with Whoopi Goldberg for lunch at Echo & Rig to celebrate the star’s 62nd birthday, talk cannabis, and why she loves the fabulous city of Las Vegas. And boy, was it magical!

The lunch kicked off with our very own CEO, Krista Whitley interviewing The View personality, Whoopi, who got candid about the cannabis industry.

Whoopi founded Whoopi and Maya, a medical cannabis brand that focuses on relieving the pain associated with menstrual cramps, which is pretty boss. She spoke about the need for this kind of medicine, as well as how half of the world’s population can benefit from it (and even more because she has re-branded the same product for men, too!).

She also dropped some knowledge on the group of cannabis industry professionals in the room, by reminding them that they should have patience when explaining the advantages of cannabis. Often times, naysayers simply do not understand and are from a time when cannabis was deemed bad.

The superstar also recanted stories about her time in the neon-lit city of Las Vegas and remarked how the city has always been good to her. She was later surprised with a gorgeous (uninfused!) cake made by the edibles company Glacé, as the crowd sang and presented her with another surprise! Unicorn Polly Weinstein, gifted Whoopi a gold-plated pot leaf necklace that was custom-made just for her.

“I AM 62 YEARS OLD TODAY!” screamed Whoopi, “You have to celebrate every birthday for your loved ones who didn’t get the chance to!”

Whoopi posed for pictures with excited industry fans while laughing and joking with lunch guests as if they were all old friends. She was incredibly gracious while answering questions and enjoying her time at lunch before heading out to perform later that evening.
