Storyline

Intelligent and engaging, the documentary 'Tricky Bidness' tells the story of how the politically progressive town of Arcata, California has grappled with the ongoing challenge of marijuana grow houses in its neighborhoods. Community members provide surprisingly candid and thoughtful analysis of the situation as the town finds itself as a hub of the marijuana black market. In 1996, Arcatans overwhelmingly supported California's Compassionate Use Act, which 'legalized' medical marijuana law...but abuses of the law, combined with the ongoing seventy-five year old prohibition of cannabis, continue to leave Arcata and other communities like it in a legal gray zone. What people from the little city of Arcata can tell you about living with marijuana might change what you think about pot... and how you vote. Written by Anonymous

A must see review of Medical Marijuana's Effects on Humboldt County
5 September 2014 | by jamesladikaSee all my reviews

A fascinating exploration of medical marijuana laws in California and their effects on Humboldt County. The interviewees all had insightful commentary that helped to explain the benefits and drawbacks of marijuana grows which the people of Humboldt County experience. They all seemed to be genuine community members who are motivated by a love of Humboldt County. The layout of the movie frames the issue in an accessible way to those who might lack a familiarity of the nuances of medicinal marijuana. The fruitless and often wasteful efforts of law enforcement agencies receive their due mention. The videography is excellent. The scenery depicted is beautiful and presents Humboldt in a beautiful and representative light.
