    It pretty much all comes down to racism. With hip-hop, weed got more associated with black/hispanic people. Some interesting facts, but could've been better. Clearly biased, but damn rotting in jail for small amount of weed is infuriating to see. America's relationship with drugs will always be complex no matter how huge weed is in popular culture.

    The lesson you should never forget is this: always consume with MODERATION.

  • Well Paced, well made, and very interesting. 4/21/2019 12:00:00 AM by athirumalai 9

    This documentary really outlines the history of cannabis in America. It really explores the cultures and art that weed fostered, explaining with great detail the motivations behind political and cultural movements that followed its introduction to the US. It does well applying that cultural lens to understand the ongoing issues faced by many communities ravaged by the war on drugs. A solid documentary and worth a watch.

  • Beautifully edited, remarkable content! 4/21/2019 12:00:00 AM by sashkanov 10

    In reading the user review, I am shocked at how many bigots feel the need to go out of their way to slander this film. It does a wonderful job at portraying the arguments of pro-cannabis, as well as highlighting marijuana's similarities and differences to alcohol and cigarettes (two very legal drugs).

    At its heart, this film is not only about cannabis but about America's history of institutional racism, and is a must-see for anyone who views themselves as for equality.

  • Well made documentary 4/22/2019 12:00:00 AM by ricardobustamantehernand 8

    The main idea of it is established at the beginning. It invites you to watch it from the perspective of the ones that had suffered it the most regarding consumption of marihuana. It shows you historic facts that help the viewer to understand the problematic behind its demonization.This particular documentary handles a very complex topic. It should be noted that is not about if drugs are good or bad, if this one or that one needs to be legalize, it is about understanding that the political motivations behind it. You may agree on this o not, but certainly it should not affect how you would rate this documentary.
