Hope Wiseman Is The Youngest Black Woman To Own a Marijuana Dispensary In The U.S.

Determined to break barriers in the cannabis industry, as well as within her community, and provide an opportunity to show others how to create generational wealth, Wiseman founded Mary and Main, a dispensary located in Prince George’s County, Maryland. The dispensary is not only a place for people to purchase medical cannabis, but a space to learn about the plant and become educated about efforts to end the “war on drugs” that has disproportionately affected minority communities.

Founded by 29-year-old Maryland Native Hope Wiseman, her mother, Dr. Octavia Simkins-Wiseman, and close family friend Dr. Larry Bryant, Mary and Main is a family enterprise. With 20 years of experience in dentistry each, Dr. Wiseman and Dr. Bryant now also seek to use cannabis to improve the lives of those suffering from debilitating illnesses.
