Scott Kremer noted that our Emerald Cup tribute to Dennis Peron barely mentioned Brownie Mary. “Mary was a 70-something woman whose only child had been killed by a drunk driver,” Scott added. “Her actual name was ‘Mary Jane.’ She baked pot brownies for AIDS and cancer patients, who she called ‘her kids.’ I saw her name in the paper a lot, and the city declared a ‘Brownie Mary Day,’ in her honor.
Scott also steered readers to her Wikipedia page.
O’Shaughnessy’s book issue included this review of Brownie Mary’s Marijuana Cookbook and Dennis Peron’s Recipe for Social Change. (I just caught a typo. Damn…)
