Women are changing the face of today’s fastest growing industry - cannabis. Join Director Windy Borman and NCIA for an exclusive screening of “Mary Janes: The Women of Weed”.
In the film, Borman 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--including AC Braddock, Jaime Lewis, Shaleen Title, Betty Aldworth, Wanda James, --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.
This free, ticketed event begins at the Dispensary & Retail Lounge on the Expo Floor, where you can meet the director and cast members of the multi-award-winning documentary. Next, join us in the Grand Ballroom for movie snacks and the film screening. Cap off the night with a behind-the-scenes look at the film with a Director and Cast Member Q&A immediately following the screening. Seating is limited so RSVP to reserve your seat.
