Miss Grass Launches "Faces Of Cannabis" to Dismantle Harmful Stereotypes of the Cannabis Community
Following their recent product launch in the Empire State, Miss Grass brings their mission to New York's first-ever cannabis consumer portrait gallery.
By: Miss Grass
Debuting with a two-week pop-up gallery at USQTA's former location, the campaign confronts the stereotypes caused by over 90 years of racially-fueled propaganda and media bias that continue causing real harm to cannabis consumers—particularly Black and Brown communities who bear the disproportionate burdens of the War on Drugs.
Through a diverse array of portraiture and compelling narratives from New York cannabis consumers, "Faces of Cannabis" provides a platform for the wider community to advocate for normalization and share their personal experiences with the plant.
Gallery visitors can add their own face to the mission by stepping into the onsite portrait studio. Nationwide, people can join the cause by sharing their face and story on social with #facesof🌱.
Location: 62 E 13th Street NY, NY (Union Square Travel Agency's former spot)
Dates: December 6-20, 2023
Time: 12PM-8PM Daily
Attendees (21+) can reserve a free visit to the gallery at facesofcannabis.eventbrite.com. Walk-ins are also welcome with registration at the door.
