Calling herself a once repressed creative, Tammy took an extensive background in finance, compliance and community advocacy, and jumped into the world of film and television production just three short years ago. In that time she has produced The Experience Pros (2015-2016) airing on BizTV, and is in development on several more television productions. Her filmography includes Producer for FEMTO 7K (2016), Who Da Belize (2014) and writer for the optioned scripts Babies and Chupacabra. Her most recent accomplishment in film is winning coveted fiscal sponsorship from Women Make Movies for her film Desolation, currently under production.
What social justice and/or criminal justice reforms do you want the US to make around its drug policy, particularly around cannabis?
You probably cannot get much more conservative than the upbringing I came from. But as life happens, we all have the opportunity to get more dug-in on perspective delivered to us in our youth or we learn to lean in with greater understanding, to expand and even change our beliefs. When it comes to social and criminal justice around cannabis, our government is in the same place we all come to in our journey to maturation…it has the choice to mature into a healthier entity by virtue of dropping elitist biases that demand the control of the masses, or to remain militantly attached to its position for the purpose of maintaining control and subjugating its constituency. Science and practical application has proven that the rhetoric and propaganda around cannabis are false, and history clearly accounts the original purpose of the prohibition. My desire is that our government drop the criminalization of cannabis, and its users, including expunging criminal records and creating programs supporting the re-entry of the exonerated. Science and practical application has proven that the rhetoric and propaganda around cannabis are false, and history clearly accounts the original purpose of the prohibition. It is time for our government to mature and to restore its people.
