I'd never expect a film to change a true skeptic's mind, nor would I ever force my beliefs on anyone resistant to them...but if ever a doubter were curious to hear the pro-legalization side of the marijuana debate, I'd recommend this film. It's a succinct, comprehensive, powerful (but not too preachy) rundown of all the best arguments in favor of what is, in millions of people's opinions, an unfairly vilified substance.
(Also, it's worth mentioning that Amazon may be doing the film a disservice by listing Tommy Chong and Joe Rogan as its stars. Each has less than three minutes of screen time, and both are immensely composed and well-spoken compared to their appearances in dumb stoner comedies and inane reality television, respectively. Rogan, in fact, cements his credibility in this film by practically apologizing for having hosted "Fear Factor".)
It pits both sides of the legalization argument and shows how many of the anti-legalization/anti-marijuana arguments are completely false and based merely on ignorance, prejudice and lack-of-facts.
Whether you are for marijuana prohibition or against it, this film inspires what should be a national discussion of the topic. This film is a MUST SEE for all interested in this topic. An important film for convincing arguments on the subject and perfect mix of humor, entertainment, and education.
Why are the most damaging drugs to humans legal and even prescribed to us?
Why are the healing medicines demonized and made illegal?
This is the best documentary I have seen on the issue of cannabis. Why is it illegal? Who benefits from having a war on a plant? My dad is a sponsor of the DARE program and feels that anyone using "marijuana" should be in jail. Jail is not for any human, animal, plant, nor any other form of life, it does NOT work and the system is beyond barbaric. The fact that US has more jails than any country tells us how crazy we have become. It's time for us to change the game. We create our government and the amount of control we will submit to. This documentary will greatly help those who know a little bit about the story, and hopefully open up the parachute for those who are willing to question their upbringing to find out why things are the way the are...
If you believe marijuana should be illegal, I challenge you to watch this film.
