Plot Summary
This documentary examines the U.S. government's marijuana regulations, and how these laws have influenced public perceptions of the drug. Narrated by noted pot advocate Woody Harrelson, the film opens with a series of comically outdated anti-drug reels before chronicling America's relationship with marijuana through the decades. Filmmaker Ron Mann splices together archival footage of U.S. politicians, musicians and artists to support his weed-friendly argument.
