No Shame in Mary Jane: How To Remove Stigma Around Cannabis & Women.


When you decide to come forward with your plant medicine use, it’s called “Coming out of the Green Closet”. That’s exactly what I did back in 2019 when I started Half Baked Housewives. Speaking in front of 1800 people at the Aztec Theatre was an invigorating to way to come out.

I trademarked No Shame in Mary Jane to remind us all that there is nothing wrong with using this marvelous, healing plant. Cannabis has been used as medicine for thousands of years.

This is the reason; Half-Baked Housewives is encouraging consumers to help end this stigma and move ahead with correct information. Read on this write-up and check out the amazing tips that can help at least some people to end the stigma around women and cannabis. Take a look!

Be Responsible Consumer: 

Once you come out about your cannabis use, be a responsible user. If you’re in a state where cannabis is not yet legal, get your medical license. This has never been easier with our partnership with Doc MJ you can easily get your license in Texas, NY, NJ, Florida and Louisiana.

Arm Yourself With Cannabis Facts:

Cannabis is so mainstream now, that there are many newsletters and magazines for this industry. Find your thought leaders in the plant medicine space and follow them on IG, FB and sign up for their emails. Surround yourself with facts and learn the laws in your state as well as those on the federal level. Remember, once you let your friends and families know you use plant medicine, they are going to ask questions and you want to steer them in the right direction.

Advocacy and Activism

Joining advocacy groups on the local and/or national level is a great way to get started with cannabis advocacy and activism. I am a member of the Texas Help Coalition and volunteer at the state capitol regularly to discuss plant medicine with our legislators. Every organization needs volunteers to help their cause and it’s a great way to meet like-minded people.
