TheUptownGrrl created her vlog YouTube channel in 2014, and has since become a entrepreneur, content creator, and consultant. Her channel and social media have become a place where beauty lovers and fashionistas alike can find makeup tutorials, product reviews, fitness, styling videos, and curly hair inspiration.

"The Highlight" is Civilized's weekly cannabis show that features different personalities, celebrities, influencers, content creators, artists, and filmmakers in the cannabis space. We will introduce a new cannabis influencer every week to share their story, which led them to create content on the web and social media for the cannabis industry.


A non-profit group of over 150 current and former athletes is calling for marijuana to be removed form the World Anti-Doping Agency's prohibited substances list. Medical marijuana legalization is spreading across the US, but most pro-athletes are still prevented from accessing it. That's because most major sports leagues follow drug guidelines set by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), which bans athletes from using cannabis even outside of competition.
