– In honor of Obama’s new Medical Marijuana Policy, here is Maureen Drennan’s project Meet Me in the Green Glen, about Ben a marijuana grower in California, who is both culturally and socially isolated because of his chosen profession.
We met a year ago and through this project have become close. Although marijuana is legal to grow and use in the state of California within strict guidelines, there are many situations in which it is still illegal. It is still not culturally acceptable to be involved in growing or selling pot. Due to the nature of rural farming and the reality of the illegalities of growing and distributing large amounts of marijuana “Ben” is socially and culturally isolated.
