EXCLUSIVE: Here’s your first look at Lady Buds, which is having its premiere at Hot Docs this month.
The film is directed by Chris J. Russo and follows six female businesswomen in the cannabis industry. Following the 2016 decision to legalize cannabis in California, these farmers, entrepreneurs and activists find their optimism is replaced by fear as the legislation turns out to favor deep-pocketed corporations.
The documentary features second-generation cannabis farmer Chiah Rodriques, 72-year-old African-American retired Catholic school principal-turned-dispensary owner Sue Taylor, Latinx queer activist Felicia Carbajal, serial entrepreneur Karyn Wagner and Humboldt elders the Bud Sisters.
