Storyline

With California and the rest of the country going bankrupt, one business is booming. 'How Weed Won the West' is the story of the growing Medical Marijuana industry, focusing on Los Angeles with over 700 legal dispensaries doling out the buds. Following the story of Organica, a southland dispensary which was raided by state and federal agencies in August of 2009, the film shows that although much has changed with Obama in office, the drug war is nowhere near over. Kevin Booth, producer/director of American Drug War, picks up where the last film left off and continues his fight against the hypocrisy of the War on Drugs. Intended to inform and entertain, this fast paced and even sometimes funny film features Texas conspiracy guru Alex Jones, Ethan Nadelmann head of Drug Policy Alliance, and a host of amazing characters including a former LAPD narcotics officer who now thinks all drugs should be legal. Even to someone who has not consumed weed in decades, this film definitely opens ... Written by Bradley Cook

Highly Educational, funny, and moving look into the modern Hemp Movement
11 June 2010 | by sumankey13See all my reviews

Not your typical "stoner" movie, Kevin Booth's newest documentary on the varied and complex issues in the hemp movement showcases the most recent, hot-off-the-presses, real-life situations involved in the move for hemp/ cannabis re-legalization, and deserves national attention. It's high production quality and in-depth, respectful, and honest look into the lives of the people this issue affects, puts it well above the bar of marijuana joke movies. This is an issue that is far too important for people to sit back on any longer. Kevin's film reflects the humanity behind an often demonized and misunderstood, healing, and possibly economic panacea herb -- Cannabis marijuana, hemp. Used to be legal. Should be again! Great, educational, funny, and moving movie. Peace. S
