The business behind getting high....

I have watched a lot of documentaries in my time and i always keep coming back to this one as it seems  to get involved in a different way to many other documentaries. It tells the story right from the beginning and how the government switches in and out of the legality of growing marijuana.

Im not saying it's a perfect cross section of the subject matter, but it's  the closests i've come to a neutral perspective. Please give this a watch and let me know what how you feel....




“BC’s illegal marijuana trade industry has evolved into a business giant, dubbed by some involved as ‘The Union’, Commanding upwards of $7 billion Canadian annually. With up to 85% of ‘BC Bud’ being exported to the United States, the trade has become an international issue. Follow filmmaker Adam Scorgie as he demystifies the underground market and brings to light how an industry can function while remaining illegal. Through growers, police officers, criminologists, economists, doctors, politicians and pop culture icons, Scorgie examines the cause and effect nature of the business – an industry that may be profiting more by being illegal. Written by Brett Harvey”
