Storyline

After surviving brain surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, a 2-year-old boy lay in a coma not eating for over 40 days. His parents are told to make funeral arrangements. However, his father had read about a version of an ancient drug made from cannabis. Unbeknownst to the hospital staff, the parents start secretly injecting the illegal drug into their dying son's feeding tube and soon a "miracle" takes place. When the doctors are told that cannabis was the cause of the "miracle," they have nothing to say. Every war has unintended victims and it's the children who are losing America's longest running war. From cartel recruiting grounds of Mexico - to a child being removed from his birth mother for smoking marijuana. Is it a conspiracy? Or simple profit motives that continue to keep marijuana inside the black market? Written by Kevin Booth

A near perfect documentary shows the true intentions of the Drug War
11 June 2013 | by vanson-studiosSee all my reviews

After taking in every subject weaved throughout this near perfect documentary on the subject of Marijuana prohibition, the growth of industries built up around this subject has finally shown that it has absolutely no direction other than showing a vacuous intention toward profit and the ease within which people can be controlled.

Whether or not one clings to the traditions or movements of a bygone era when it comes to medicating the sick and dying, the smallest facts one can derive from those presented in the film should, at the very least, produce conclusions that draw back the veil of a mindset that has been artificially accepted as fact over individual free will.

I believe the film shows in great detail how prohibition is not about keeping fingers out of the cookie jar as not to spoil dinner or keeping teeth from rotting, it is about how much the cookies cost someone else.
