II feel I'm like quite a few folks not having a strongly formed opinion about marijuana. This film is like a quick education about changing times and long held misconceptions based on early 20th century propaganda. I feel after watching it I've been duped by one huge movement with several early evil agendas. That doesn't even address the trail of tears of ruined lives as collateral damage. This doc is pro-legalization, but it is balanced enough not to be dismissed. I have to say it raises some very powerful points. I think the most important take-away is it is been made much worse for our society as a whole by draconian laws based on many lies. The way it has transpired for almost 80+ years has been more advantageous to large criminal enterprise while exacting a high cost on society, in particular disproportionately within certain communities. Now things are changing and like the film says we still have a long way to go. These facts make this an entertaining, but sobering, look at the particular point in our history in which we find ourselves at the doorstep for a better future. Keep the lies out this time in order to not repeat with another mess. See it and form your own opinion.
