I started watching this film with a whole lot of doubt and skepticism. I am by no means radical in any way, and until recently was also anti-legalization. John Holowach is a new filmmaker with a lot to say, and he does it without condescension, and with plenty of wry humor and wit. Some parts of the film pissed me off, and others made me very sad. It wasn't a boring, typical documentary by any means, and I highly recommend you check it out, if only because it's the first serious look at the War on Drugs that doesn't cop out to either extreme of the argument.

High: The True Tale of American Marijuana by Keith Stroup, John Holowach. This is a good video on the Subject. Biased, but almost everyone talking about this subject has some biases. Some good information on the Drug use and trade in America.

Has a lot of good facts and information but the arrangement does seem a bit biased towards pro-cannabis. I would of liked to see more anti-cannabis quotes, videos, etc. to help balance and show the outrageous "factor" of why cannabis is illegal. Overall it was a good film but seemed a little bit dated to me and I prefer the newer "The Union" documentary. The film comes off as a student's argument for the consequences of a current U.S. policy. I would of liked to see the inclusion of medical/scientific studies surrounding Cannabis.

This film is utter garbage, it wanders from point to point without making much sense, and lacking any kind of a legimate argument other than the opinion of the films producer.

This documentary though well narrated by its director is rather dim-witted in its arrangement and craft. There are a lot of interesting facts shared but what I found preposterous was the fact that the film postures its self as a pro Marijuana propaganda vehicle while this sites description seems to indicate that the film explores all sides of the subject, the positive and the negative. I my self was a serious Marijuana smoker in my teens. Even I know that though it may be somewhat safe for the casual user, it does pose serious risks to the over all health of long time heavy users. And there are many documented cases of long term brain chemical embalances resulting from chronic use of the drug over long periods of time. Many users will also admit that the drug causes extreme apathy, paranoia, anxiety, and other mental problems that can result in many years of emotional embalances and the need for treatment through therapy and numerous medications such as aprazolam(Xanax) and Seretonin re-uptake inhibitors(SSRIs Prozac, Zoloft) to treat mental problems or chemical brain damage that results. This documentary chooses to flaunt every opportunity to praise Marijuana and downplays the obvious negative impact of the drug. Dont be fooled, Marijuana is not a completely safe drug. While it has obvious health benefits for those with medical conditions such as glaucoma and Carpel tunnel syndrome, there are many ex users who are more than willing to discuss the darker side of Marijuana. Few ever listen sadly, until of course its too late.

This documentary was very informative but the narrator's voice drove me up a wall, very hard to listen to. Great otherwise.

This is a well researched documentary on the history and plight of America's greatest illegal past time. Beginning with its origins and inception into American culture, this title explores the downward spiral of public acceptance as it was stigmatized by a new drug czar with ulterior motives. Overall, I learned a lot watching this, albeit my interest waned in some of the end parts. With so many goofy films regarding marijuana, this one is a worth watching more so for its objective stance than production value.
