We had the good fortune of connecting with Maurice Ross and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Maurice, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Honestly, like the name of the brand says it all started from my “Thoughts As The Smoke Flow” Every morning I would roll up, smoke and think about my goals for the day. and just like all great ideas it just came to me. As stoners we sit and think about a lot its non stop thoughts going through our heads while we are partaking in the higher life so I figured I could create something that ALL stoners would love. No matter your race, gender, background, etc. we all have our own Thoughts As The Smoke Flow!!

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
As I stated earlier the brand started with stoners on my mind but, unlike similar cannabis brands such as Backwoods brand and the Cookies brand, my brand can be used more universally. Urban clothing is just the beginning for the Thoughts As The Smoke Flow brand, we are in the process of releasing our own handmade scented candles and incense. This entire new journey has been exciting but it was definitely plenty of late nights and a lot of trial and error but I’ve learned that the only way you will succeed is if you keep trying. You can’t let setbacks stop you and never let anyone box you in to one category. So the one thing everyone needs to remember about this brand is “We go wherever the Smoke Flow”.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Well we definitely would have to go hit up Lotus Seafood to me that loud pack is one of the best things in the city especially with that crack sauce lol but to be fair I haven’t tried all of the other popular seafood places here yet. and me personally I’m not a real big drinker so I normal just go grab a daiquiri at Smoke Kingz sit in there and and enjoy the vibes because the establishment is ummm shall I say stoner friendly if you know what I mean lol. But that’s mostly where I be I like to go to different pop up shops and things like that.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My L.I.E ENT brothers D The Business and Black Don for always being down for whatever, My loving family for just always being there and understanding that all the long nights are gonna be worth it, Mr. King at Smoke Kingz Smoke Shop and Daiquiri Room in Katy, Tx for giving me the opportunity to put my merchandise in his store and for continuing to rock with me 💯, Brit The Brain from The Core 94 for her constant support and advice since day 1, and everyone out there that has ever took time out of their day to buy a shirt, like a post, share, or comment on something thank you all for the support.
