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 Narrated by noted pot advocate Woody Harrelson, the film opens with a series of comically outdated anti-drug reels before chronicling America's relationship with marijuana through the decades.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.

  • A well-researched and well-illustrated, if often facetious, record of the U.S. government's longtime war on cannabis. And while it's a little too single-minded, it's both fun to watch and quite informative.

  • A revealing, often amusing, sometimes disturbing look at the history and politics of marijuana use in American society. show more

  • A spirited, smart-alecky look at the ongoing conflict between a government that wants to eliminate pot and a public that wants to smoke it.
