Q&A Attendees *subject to change: Windy Borman
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 that cannabis liberation intersects with some of the most urgent social justice issues of our time including environmental sustainability, ending the War on Drugs and the prison-industrial complex, and the destructive domination of Big Pharma.
