EL: Can you tell us about your first experience using cannabis?
Scout: I was 16 at Spirit Fest, which is a festival in Kansas City, where I’m from, and my friend went up to a group of total strangers and was like, “Hey, my friend has never smoked pot before. Can she take a hit?” And they said yes!
EL: We’re all so glad they did! So – What is your earliest, fondest memory of watching MTV?
Scout: Man, getting to watch MTV was a big deal in my house. It was a sign of true adulthood. My ultimate dream was to be on SINGLED OUT, which sadly never happened. That and Spring Break. Man, those were the days.
EL: Ha ha – they certainly were. And funny enough we still have Chris Hardwick and Jenny McCarthy in our lives, sorta’. What is your absolute favorite way to consume marijuana?
Scout: With friends! I like being social and passing a joint.
EL: The classics stay popular for good reason, to be sure. What do you think 16 year old Scout would say about your current job?
Scout: She’d be super proud! I love our show, and I love the team of people who work to put it together. It’s an incredible amount of fun.
EL: That’s so good to hear. Loving what you do is the best! In your current life, how would you describe the ideal Friday evening?
Scout: I love going to and performing in shows. In my dream world, I would be at or in a show every night. I have to say, I just finished working on a music album, and right now I’ve been spending a lot of time putting together a tour of it for next year, so making that come true would be my ideal.
Thanks again for taking the time to talk to us Scout, and congratulations on everything you’re doing! We can’t wait to see what you do next!
