I started to watch this film because of it's catchy title. By the time it was over, I was almost in tears by how this film inspired and influenced me.
The film features the perspectives of two opposing views. We hear stories from people who are against marijuana legalization, and and from people who are pro marijuana legalization. Only 18 states favor the use of medicinal cannabis/cannabis decriminalization or both. The war on drugs is heard from those who support the medicational usage of marijuana and those who believe there is no such thing.
I learned so much from this film. I never knew marijuana could be used to treat such illnesses as cancer, glaucoma, leukemia, chronic illnesses, nerve damage, cerebral palsy and other diseases. It has been proved many times that marijuana is an effective drug, and causes less harmful side effects than the leading pill prescriptions. People who live in states such as Texas or Missouri struggle to get the marijuana they need to live more comfortably, at the threat of being fined or arrested while others are sent prescription cannabis legally by the Federal Government.
This film is a must see. It's one of the most inspiring documentaries i have seen since Hoop Dreams. Hopefully in the near future the plight of these bold and brave patients who need their medicine will come to an end.
