Mary Janes—Women of Cannabis: A documentary screening

Join The Coven Club as we head to check out Mary Janes—Women of Cannabis: A documentary screening.

When: Wednesday, October 24. 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

Where: Simon Fraser University at Harbour Centre—515 West Hastings Street.

The Georgia Straight presents the first Canadian screening of Mary Janes: Women of Cannabis, a documentary highlighting the role of women in the cannabis liberation movement and future of the industry. Hosted in the beautiful waterfront SFU campus in the Harbour Centre, the documentary shines light on the potential and importance of women-led cannabis businesses. A panel of Canada’s leading weed ladies will kick off the screening.

“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.”
