Welcome to The Stoned Society, the one man company of Mauro Picavet in the Netherlands.
Since January 2016 I’m on the board as secretary of the Union for Abolition of Cannabis Prohibition NGO (Verbond voor Opheffing van het Cannabisverbod, or short VOC Nederland).
I am fluent in speaking, writing in English and Dutch. Specialized in the legal cannabis space. In 2020 I started the Dutch cannabis industry website cannabisindustrie.nl (and since 2023 a sister site for the hemp industry, hennepindustrie.nl) and host the Cannabis Industrie Podcast. Also on Spotify.
Since 2011 I’m active in the cannabis space. I’ve worked with several NGOs and my experience of writing, editing, social media, building cannabis related websites and organizing events could be of use to you.
I can provide a wide variety of services to serve your every need.
My writing has been published for several companies, including CNNBS, Cannabis News Network, Suzy Seeds, Biotabs and VapoShop.
I have a lot of experience editing text online through WordPress and Magento.
I’ve built up several accounts, including The Stoned Society twitter page from scratch to a whopping 36.000 followers. And all organic!
Apart from The Stoned Society in several renditions, I’ve built the cannabisindustrie.nl and Cannabis Industrie Awards website, VOC Nederland website, HomeGrown Cup website, Veilig Thuis Kweken website, Cannagenethics website, Cannabis en Verkeer website, De Nationale Cannabis Krant website, CannaStemBus website, the first version of the Justice for Johan website and have helped create the Cannabis News Network website.
I’ve helped produce several events, including four times the Cannabis Liberation Day festival in Amsterdam, seven HomeGrown Cups and co-founded De Gouden Gieter. With the NGO Union for Abolition of Cannabis Prohibition, we produced also several smaller events. Including the Cannabis Reguleren in de Praktijk debate, press meetings & industry dinners.
Perhaps my years of experience can help you further?

Here’s what other people have to say about me.
“It was a great opportunity for me to write for the S.S. (2015-2016). I got to work with a great editor on a terrific platform and in so doing met and befriended warriors of cannabis activism including Dana Beal, Rick Doblin, Dagga Couple, as well as yourself. In the process, the world radically changed from anti-hemp to pro-hemp, something that hadn’t occurred in almost 100 years. And the Stoned Society played no small part in making that happen. Indeed, the Stoned Society helped to change the world. Congratulations on your bravery, progressive thinking and success. It was a great run and we’re looking forward to your next endeavors. Keep on rolling!!”Andrew Arnett
