RENO -- With one medical marijuana dispensary open in Sparks and another opening before the end of the month in Reno, marijuana establishments are gaining traction in Nevada. Behind the scenes, dispensaries are supported by grow facilities, cultivation centers, testing labs and consulting firms, all of whom face the unique struggles of being in a burgeoning yet federally illegal industry.

Women in Weed: How Legal Marijuana Could Be the First Billion-Dollar Industry Not Dominated by ...

It seems fitting that a plant called Mary Jane could smash the patriarchy. After all, only female marijuana flowers produce cannabinoids like the potent THC chemical that gets users buzzed. Pot farmers strive to keep all their crops female through flowering female clones of one plant, called the Mother.
