Her Persona & Role in Personal & Cultural Experience Kathleen Harrison, MA September 26, 2015; 11:00 - 11:32 am; Room 1 Human cultures tend to perceive powerful species as beings, and this being—Marijuana, Cannabis, Bhang—is one who has been in close relation- ship with many cultures of the world for at least several thousand years. Psychoactive Cannabis is widely felt as feminine. We might ask, “What is she doing here? Friend, comforter, She-who-softens, She-who-brings-joy, or She-who-obscures?” In these terms, Kat will examine who Cannabis spirit is and what she offers our culture in these times.
