How Weed Won The West

[jwplayer mediaid=”3689″]

Director Kevin Booth (American Drug War: The Last White Hope) explores California’s booming medical marijuana industry while highlighting the hypocrisy of the War on Drugs. In Los Angeles alone, there are more than 700 legal dispensaries where licensed users can procure their drug of choice. Yet in August of 2009, the Organica dispensary in Southland was subject to a massive raid by state and federal agents. So why does the President elected on his promise to enact change in contemporary America still seem stuck in the old ways of thinking when it comes to the subject of marijuana?

Texas-based conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and Drug Policy Alliance head Ethan Nadelmann weigh in with their own opinions on the matter in a documentary designed to both educate and entertain.
