where you can cast a vote for a local 18-year-old, Shauna Jiselle, aka Princess Shauna, to become
Miss High Times
. RFG notes,
If she earns enough votes to make her a finalist, she will be flown to Jamaica and compete in the Miss High Tmes Beauty Pageant. The winner of this pageant graces the cover of High Times magazine. Winning this contest would be a great opportunity for her and open many doors to expand Shauna's modeling career.
Shauna lives in Humboldt County with her family and puppy. She goes to beauty college full time, and spends her off days at photo shoots to further build her modeling portfolio.
I am a ganja princess in the marijuana capital of the world...HUMBOLDT COUNTY, California! It be an honor to represent my stoney hometown as Miss High Times...who better to hold the crown a true stoner bitch?! xoxo"
Also in the running for Miss High Times: "TastyHumboldt," who says,
Beauty is in the high of the beholder. Behold! I am beautiful, high and I love High Times. Yeah I'm Jamaican and Vietnamese. I've always dreamed of traveling to my heartlands as the Weed Ambassador for High Times.
As you might have noticed, there's also a concurrent Mister High Times contest. Among those who have thrown their hat in the ring: local hip hop legend and Eureka resident
