But, what IS Mary and Main?
Passionate Pioneers Against Negative Stigma
Cannabis has been proven to be a renewable and amazingly beneficial alternative to many modern medicines. Marijuana doesn’t come with the harsh and often toxic chemicals that many prescribed pharmaceuticals contain, and has been proven to assist in easing a wide range of physical and mental complaints. However, due to the negative stigma that surrounds the plant, it has been difficult to get the product the positive attention it so rightly deserves. Mary and Main is avidly trying to change that negative stigma, and instead show patients and others the incredible healing power that marijuana offers.
Philanthropists and Educators
In order to truly change the negativity that surrounds marijuana, it’s important to reach out to the community and create a healthy dialogue about alternative healthcare and responsible medicine. Mary and Main does this by giving back to the community and staying active in charity work and education efforts that expand awareness of cannabis medicine.The Mary and Main team knows that by breaking down the mystery and rhetoric surrounding marijuana as a medicine and educating a community on its use and benefits, we can all work together to open the minds of others and promote a more accepting environment for marijuana and its medicinal uses.
