Storyline

Bad Seed is the tale of a tiny little seed that some see as good and others believe is evil. Cannabis and hemp can drastically improve the quality of life of people suffering from a wide range of symptoms and illnesses yet people are denied relief due to marijuana's bad reputation. Is cannabis a bad seed? Or have it's extraordinary health benefits been unjustly suppressed by government, law enforcement and corporate manipulation? Following the story of a medical marijuana user and activist, filmmaker Shayne Metcalfe delves into the history of cannabis prohibition in Canada, the United States and Mexico over the past century. Incorporating the perspectives of law enforcement, doctors, lawyers, activists, commercial growers, medical patients, historians and entrepreneurs, Bad Seed tells the fascinating story of how one of nature's gifts came to be vilified and provides an intriguing look at the rapidly changing marijuana landscape. Written by Shayne Metcalfe

Solid film on medical marijuana and hemp
16 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is a good documentary for anyone to watch. It's not just for the pro thinker. But it's not just for those against either. I think what I like most if how the people in it get pretty much an equal billing. The doctor gets as much time as the regular Joe so we hear from all types of people and get a truly diverse viewpoint. I looks at the cannabis industry, the hemp industry, and the prison industry as well as law enforcement and legal industries. Lot's is at stake when we look at legalizing a plant that competes with just about every industry. The film gives info, but it's fun to watch as well. I won't spoil the ending, but it's a nice pay off and the whole thing wraps up nicely. If you are looking for the same old documentary this is probably not for you. If you want a fresh look at an issue America is talking about everyday then watch Bad Seed. Even if you are in other parts of North America like Canada or Mexico there is something in there for you as well. Find out why governments have made it illegal to grow a plant.
