"British Columbia's illegal marijuana trade industry has evolved into an unstoppable business giant, dubbed by those involved as "The Union." Follow filmmaker Adam Scorgie as he demystifies the underground market and brings to light how an industry can function while remaining illegal. Through interviews with growers, police officers, criminologists, economists, doctors, politicians and pop culture icons, Scorgie examines the cause and effect nature of the business behind getting high. Nobody's innocent in this exploration of an industry that may be profiting more by being illegal."--Container.

I often joke that BC would be bankrupt without the famous BC Bud - this documentary goes even further to explain a whole lot about this most controversial plant and those who maintain it has benefits for us all - the documentary goes way beyond what i know of its origins why it is illegal - a must see for those who have had people around them with devastating diseases and their struggles in finding sensible medical care and alternative healing comfort options to the dying -- the film will spark anger in even the most conservative intelligent minds - a very provocative film
