It used to be that up and coming Hollywood actresses waited tables.
Megan Albertus, 28, bakes pot brownies and chocolate chip cannabis cookies. Her Regular Strength edibles - cooked up with a quarter gram of pot - and her XXX specials - with half a gram - are featured treats at the Green Oasis medical marijuana dispensary in west Los Angeles.
Television viewers may recall Albertus from NBC's reality show Momma's Boys. She lasted though five of six episodes as 32 women battled for the romantic affections of three men, a firefighter, real estate broker and college student.
She has also appeared in numerous television commercials from beer ads to, yes, an anti-drug public service spot.
In between acting gigs, she shows up for work as the baker at the Green Oasis. "I've perfected my art in my kitchen, and I'm honored that it's so popular," she says.
As for waitressing, she's done with that.
"I wouldn't go back to waiting tables," Albertus says. "I find, by and large, the people I serve here" at the dispensary "are much nicer. The jerk ratio is far lower."
