Not only does “Mary Janes: The Women of Weed” promise to be one of the best documentaries addressing social injustice, gender inequality, and marijuana you’ll ever see, it promises something much more important: hope for real, tangible, attainable change.
Director Windy Borman profiles the female ganjapraneurs addressing the complex issues in the cannabis movement. From racial disparities in marijuana arrests to cannabis’ classification as a Schedule I drug, this diverse group of women plays an active role in these debates.
