The Green Rush: A Legalization of Marijuana Documentary

In just two weeks, California will be voting in to legalize marijuana in the November general elections.  In honor of Proposition 19, I'll be making some posts that may hopefully help to sway you into voting to legalize it.


Today I have for you a documentary which I hope you will not only enjoy but perhaps learn something from as well.  


The Green Rush is an award winning documentary following several marijuana farmers over an entire outdoor grow season.

 

A compelling look at the lives of some not-so-ordinary farmers, The Green Rush is a chronicle of the trials and tribulations of a unique group of marijuana farmers in Northern California. 


Identified only by the color of the bandanas they wear to conceal their faces, Mr. Red, Mr. Blue, Mr. Yellow, and Mrs. Pink represent a growing segment of hardworking and passionate Californians.  They are quasi outlaws, plowing a delicate field between the lines of the law and the American tradition of sustenance.  The backwoods setting narrows a distinct and sharp focus on the battle between the broad and mighty federal authorities and the sympathetic state enforcers, whose mandates are unfairly inverse.


Amongst the trees, mountains and untouched splendor of Northern California's richest soil, these farmers wage a battle crafting the best yield of an unforgiving crop against the looming threat of DEA fly-bys,family and personal hardship, thieves, and the ultimate risk…prison time.

  4. Where are the statutes they are proposing again? Please drop a note to me if you have this information or post an entry as to what is precisely being proposed. Doesn't seem to be easy to find in your archives. Thanks!

  19. I hope that stuff gets legal there soon, as it is here (Netherlands). Alcohol is more addicting (actually more addicting than a lot of stuff) and tobacco is more devastating. So why is weed illegal?
