Very educational documentary about marijuana

canadian documentary marijuanaHere is a very comprehensive look at the question of marijuana; its history; its myths; the “war on drugs” where marijuana is highest on the list; the realities of increasing marijuana use in North America and increased incarceration (more prisons); the open use of marijuana in Canada; the large marijuana industry in British Columbia Canada; the many vested interests, from growers to prison builders and the legal profession, that want no change in the laws as they profit from it.

Most of all it highlights  the pressure on politicians by pharmaceutical companies who know of the medicinal properties of cannabis, but  since they cannot make money on it they resist the idea of legalizing medical marijuana since it would reduce their profits
