This documentary tracks the history of hemp, a plant more commonly known as marijuana among those who smoke it. But, while advocating for its legalization, director Anthony Clarke shows that hemp is good for more than simply producing an altered mind state. For generations its strong fibers have been used to make paper and clothing; in fact, the Declaration of Independence was written on it. But corporate interests and politics have colluded to make the useful plant illegal.
