Piper Courtenay

Cannabis Editor, The Georgia Straight

Piper Courtenay is the cannabis editor at The Georgia Straight, Vancouver’s longest-running weekly newspaper. She also manages Straight Cannabis, the publication’s first stand-alone vertical. While obtaining a Bachelor of Journalism Honours degree from Humber College in Toronto, ON, Piper honed her skillset during several competitive internships, including CBC (London, England), ELLE Canada, and Chorus Entertainment. During her time in Ontario, she experience the stigma surrounding cannabis use firsthand and became empowered to learn as much as possible from the community. Craving the mountains and ocean, she returned to the West Coast as a writer and dedicated her newfound intellectual passion to normalizing the conversation surrounding cannabis, mental health, and plant medicine.
