Mary Janes: The Women of Weed is the latest film coming from documentary director Windy Borman. The director's two previous films, The Eyes of Thailand (2012) and The Big Picture: Rethinking Dyslexia (2012), have won awards, opened minds, and celebrated the heroics that result when seemingly everyday people persevere in the good struggle. Borman's newest foray into steadfast action in difficult circumstances focuses on several female pioneers in the burgeoning legal-marijuana movement and economy.
