The Truth About Marijuana Prohibition
12 March 2003 | by (austin, texas, usa) – See all my reviews

Excellent documentary about the real reasons marijuana was criminalized in the United States. If you want to see how & why the lies were told (and why they continue), I strongly suggest viewing this.

The only down side to the effort is that it occasionally departs from being a look at the facts to a total loss of objectivity and a pro-pot raving. While I agree with that opinion, it hurts the film's credibility in the end. On the plus side, there is a wealth of information and plenty of ammunition for debating with those who would impose their intolerance on the populace.
