Grass Roots

Usually, what happens in Nevada stays in Nevada. But not if the Committee to Regulate and Control Marijuana has its way.
October 5, 2007


Usually, what happens in Nevada stays in Nevada. But not if the Committee to Regulate and Control Marijuana has its way. Not only are they aiming to have pot legalized in the gambling state, but they hope to one day achieve freedom for tokers all over the US. Grass Roots is a feature doc that follows the efforts for and against Question 7, the pending legal initiative that will make pot legal if enough voters can be convinced of its merits.

These cannabis crusaders are not your average hippies ‒ they are a shrewd lot, waging a cunning war that may just convince a state to embrace their views. This is a highly entertaining (pun intended) doc you shouldn’t miss.
