The site currently showcases the first six episodes of cooking program “Mary Jane’s Apron.” In the program, Hunter plays Mary Jane, a 1950s-stylized housewife delivering real, cannabis-specific cooking lessons. Viewers learn how to prepare cannabis-infused butter, oil, flower, honey, and more — with myriad dishes coming in future episodes.
“A lot of people know about brownies and other baked goods, and on MaryJanesApron I want to expand upon that,” Hunter shared. “I make pancakes, fresh pasta, chicken kiev, and pizza for example, all of which are infused with marijuana. Cannabis can be in breakfast, lunch, and dinners!”
MaryJanesApron also showcases an extensive archive of additional cannabis-focused cooking programs and informative articles. Future episodes include guest chefs and on-location demonstrations at trade shows and public events
“It’s a lot of fun producing a more ‘mainstream’ show,” Angie Rowntree shared. “It gives us all the opportunity to be creative in a very different way. I’m really looking forward to see where MaryJanesApron will take us.”

The site’s launch comes at the heels of a recent Rolling Stone piece exploring the social and cultural amalgamation of pot and porn — “Weed Porn: How Two Taboos Became Popular Bedfellows.” Though MaryJanesApron.com is completely safe for work and does not tap into Hunter’s skills as an erotic performer, the stigma existing amongst the cannabis and porn subcultures is significant.
“When we first began producing the cannabis cooking show series in 2017, we decided to keep the adult entertainer aspect out of it and go for a more mainstream friendly approach as it was unknown if the two cultures would play well together or how the legal marijuana industry felt about porn,” Wasteland founder Colin Rowntree explained.
“Well, with new information and as written up in Rolling Stone, pot and porn go together like bread and butter, so we decided to do the big reveal to bring these two communities some interesting content,” he added.
