Whoopi Goldberg has started an interesting new business: It's a medical marijuana line meant to help with period cramps. "If you don’t want to get high high, this is a product specifically just to get rid of discomfort," Goldberg tells Vanity Fair. "Smoking a joint is fine, but most people can’t smoke a joint and go to work." She started the company, called Maya & Whoopi, with another cannabis business owner, Maya Elisabeth.

The line will include edibles, tinctures, as well as rubs that can be used on the body and a relaxing bath soak infused with THC. "I have grown granddaughters who have severe cramps, so I said this is what I want to work on," Goldberg says. (Read more Whoopi Goldberg stories.)
