This dual focus on the need to end the ineffective, destructive “war on drugs” and broader questions of political compromise gives director Riley Morton’s film particular resonance.

The absence of suspense results in something closer to a one-sided pat on the back for everyone involved, though it effectively puts forth a whole new set of challenges.

The personalities and rhetoric are colorful and the film's presentation is lively, though some viewers will wish for a little more rigor.

Because the battle for legalization is still being fought in most other states, the lack of an up-to-date perspective is frustrating.

The New York Times
This record of Washington State’s battle over Initiative 502, which legalized possession of small amounts of recreational marijuana in 2012, is predictably loaded with rancor. The battle isn’t over whether pot should be legalized, but to what extent.
