Evelyn LaChapelle


Evelyn LaChapelle. In 2013, Evelyn found herself facing adversity, convicted on three charges related to her minor role in a marijuana distribution operation. Despite a challenging period that led to an 87-month prison sentence, Evelyn emerged stronger and determined to make a positive impact.

Today, Evelyn is a driving force in the legal cannabis industry, utilizing her professional position to advocate for restorative justice. As the proud owner and founder of The Weed Lady gift shop and lifestyle brand, she is on a mission to normalize cannabis consumption and create opportunities for the formerly incarcerated to find their path in this evolving industry.

Evelyn’s journey is a powerful narrative of both defeat and victory. She is committed to pushing her brand, The Weed Lady, forward with a focus on luxury cannabis essentials, apparel, cannabis delivery, and soon-to-be-released cannabis beverages. Beyond her entrepreneurial ventures, Evelyn is the co-creator of CannaKick-it, the Bay Area’s premier cannabis day party. Additionally, she is a founding member of Ladies Loving and Living, a non-profit organization dedicated to serving women post-incarceration.

In 2023, Evelyn took her passion for empowering others to the airwaves with the launch of her own podcast, “Grind Time.” This podcast serves as a behind-the-scenes look at becoming an entrepreneur, offering valuable insights and practical advice.
