Faces of Mary Jane

MY PRIDE, MY JOY, AND THE SPARK THAT STARTED IT ALL; FACES OF MARY JANE IS A PHOTOJOURNALISM PROJECT THAT SHEDS LIGHT ON ALL THE DIFFERENT PEOPLE THAT USE CANNABIS. EACH PERSONS’ INDIVIDUAL STORY IS SHARED TO DE-STIGMATIZE NOT JUST THE CANNABIS USER, BUT THE PLANT AS WELL. PEOPLE ARE PEOPLE, AND SOMETIMES THEY ALSO HAPPEN TO ENJOY MARIJUANA! SEE THEM, READ THEIR STORY AND LEARN MORE ABOUT THE CANNABIS COMMUNITY! I’VE MET SUCH AMAZING PEOPLE THROUGH THIS PROJECT, AND IF I DON’T GET TO PHOTOGRAPH YOU NEXT AND HEAR YOUR STORY, I HOPE YOU ENJOY READING THE BEAUTIFUL STORIES OF THOSE I DID.
