Women are changing the face of today’s fastest growing industry – cannabis. Join filmmaker Windy Borman as she explores the movement to end marijuana prohibition, her own relationship to the plant, and the stereotypes surrounding it. Through a series of empowering and educational interviews with a broad diversity of women leading the industry today, Windy’s own assumptions are transformed as she discovers cannabis liberation intersects with the most urgent social justice issues of our time. She learns how this green revolution has big effects on environmental sustainability, ending the War on Drugs and the Prison-Industrial Complex, and the destructive domination of Big Pharma.

“MARY JANES: THE WOMEN OF WEED explores the potential for gender parity, social justice and environmental sustainability in an emerging field that, until recently, was primarily a movement.” – Huffpost

“Borman deftly challenges age-old stereotypes, explains the scientific and medical benefits of the plant, and thoughtfully addresses how America’s War on Drugs disproportionately impacts people of color. She tackles all of these topics through the lens of feminism.” – Forbes

 “An insightful and informational look at women’s role in the new cannabis market… Even if you’re not a fan of cannabis, and are convinced you have your mind made up, MARY JANES is a very eye-opening and educational documentary about the subject.” - Film Threat
