One of the best ways to learn about any subject of interest is by seeking out materials, such as documentaries, sitcoms, movies and other shows. This article summarizes some of the most acclaimed documentaries which will help you to delve into the different aspects (on both sides of the divide) of the cannabis industry.
Documentary #1: Weed the People (2018)
You are likely to watch this documentary with rapt attention for the entire 97 minutes that it runs. The documentary will evoke your emotions and overwhelm you as you follow the story of a group of parents and their kids suffering from cancer. You will feel the frustration of these parents as the pace at which cannabis laws change is too slow at this time when lives are at stake. You will experience the hope and relief as the parents resolve to break the law and try cannabis treatments for their kids, and you will experience the elation that the parents feel when cannabis treatments produce visible changes in the very sick kids.
Documentary #2: 420: The Documentary (2013)
In brief, 420: The Documentary primarily tells the story of how negative propaganda was used to malign marijuana, thereby resulting in the criminalization of a plant which would have benefited lots of people.
In this documentary, you will see footage from a lot of 420 civil disobedience events from around the world, and you will follow the stories of young people who had to endure prison (and even gunshots) because of their desire to consume marijuana.
There are testimonies of law enforcement officers who now regret taking part in enforcing the misguided anti-marijuana laws. Watch this documentary and learn how propaganda warped people’s views about cannabis.
Documentary #3: American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny (2013)
This documentary clearly brings out the fact that the biggest victims of the war on drugs are kids. The documentary follows a 2-year old kid during his battle with brain cancer. This little child is subjected to everything that conventional medicine has to offer from surgery to chemo and radiation. Nothing helps, and the parents are told to expect the worst.
Out of desperation, the parents take matters into their own hands and start researching alternative treatments for cancer. As luck would have it, they learn about an ancient treatment made from marijuana and they start injecting this concoction into the feeding tube of their son without letting the doctors in on their secret. The doctors are amazed by the “miraculous” transformation in the condition of the boy. This documentary will open your eyes to the therapeutic benefits of cannabis.
Documentary #4: Lynching Charlie Lynch (2011)
If you can now walk into a medical cannabis dispensary and buy anything you need for you symptoms, look up at the heavens and thank people like Charlie Lynch for taking the heat and pioneering medical cannabis treatments in our modern world.
The documentary shows what happened from 2006 when Charlie Lynch opened his medical cannabis dispensary in California. He followed all legal requirements of the state and was even admitted to the chamber of commerce.
However, the DEA didn’t give a hoot about all the steps he went through to abide by the existing state laws, and they raided his dispensary on numerous occasions. Eventually, he was arrested on several charges including selling marijuana to minors. In the blink of an eye, this highly respected member of the medical community acquired the label of a drug dealer. Watch this documentary and learn the hell that the early believers in medical cannabis went through.
The four documentaries above are presented in no particular order of precedence, and each will add something to your understanding of this often-polarizing subject of marijuana. Do you think any pivotal documentary was omitted? ChineseInvestors.com Inc. (OTCQB: CIIX) and Chemistree Technology Inc. (CSE: CHM) (OTCQB: CHMJF) hope that such documentaries will tell the true story of marijuana and people can form their own opinions instead of relying on the untruths which are often spread far and wide about cannabis.
