    • Synopsis
    • A real story, an existential experience that has led us to denounce the failure of a prohibitionist policy regarding cannabis and the perception of conservative societies on this emerging economy, in contrast to the current global industry and its political-economic situation.

      What there is no doubt is that the cannabis sector moves billions and many jobs around the world, today, in the hands of a black market that is losing strength as its regulation advances. A large-scale earthquake, an element of change in global economic policy.

      Although the industry continues to be dominated by men, the influence of women is in the expansion
      phase. Farmers, expert researchers in cannabis, doctors, scientists, magistrates, lawyers, investors,
      etc. We will give voice to those responsible for changing the perception of this plant to strengthen its
      positive image, distancing itself from all the negative or sexist connotations of the "stoned" culture.
      Women who once again have been the engine of legislative changes in many parts of the world and
      the protagonists of a new disruptive and emerging economy.
