Xena: Pro-Marijuana Warrior Princess

Lucy Lawless, wisely known for her role for her role as a leather-clad, ass-kicking feminist icon on the 1990s cult classic Xena: Warrior Princess, is now fighting to liberate from tyranny another oppressed group: medical marijuana patients.

New Zealand-born actor Lawless, who has since starred as Number Three on Battlestar Galactica, on Spartacus: Blood and Sand, and in the fifth and sixth season of Parks and Recreation, recently spoke out on medical cannabis after the Health Minister for Queensland, Cameron Dick, introduced legislation easing up the restrictions on the plant for medical users.

Lawless's compassion for families seeking access to medical cannabis isn't that surprising: she's long been a tireless fundraiser and member of the board of trustees of the StarShip Foundation, the charity arm of the Starship Children's Health Hospital.

The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in.
