DOPE Life | Ricki Lake

On our 2018 Women’s Issue cover we have none other than the talented Ricki Lake. While best known for her ‘90s talk show, Lake has quite a diverse portfolio — having starred in films like the cult classic “Hairspray,” Lake is no newbie to being captured on film. What you may not know about Lake, however, is her time spent behind the camera as a documentary producer, including “The Business of Being Born” and, most recently, “Weed the People,” which follows the families of children diagnosed with cancer who use cannabis as a treatment. While many of Lake’s documentaries “poke the tiger,” as she would say, her aim is to educate people and allow them to make informed decisions about their bodies. This interview may just surprise you!
