HAPPY 4/20 2020 to ALL. It’s the most surreal time in the existence of humans as the Coronavirus Pandemic swirls around the Earth. What better time to gather digitally to celebrate the finest plant known to Mankind, Cannabis.

We had wanted to release a finished documentary, “Cannabis the Story,” today at 4:20 on 4/20/2020. Instead, we have a Work in Progress that we would like to share with you all on this auspicious day about an hour after the appointed time. As we in the Cannabis Tribe well know, Cannabis events don’t necessarily include the concept of time. That said, here is a 25-minute version of the documentary. Please tell us what you think about it, what you would like to see more of, less of, etc. Any questions for Mark about his Nectarball Collection? All of your feedback will be very useful throughout this editing process. This piece focuses on some history, prohibition, Cannabis as medicine, Cannabis vs. Pharmaceuticals, Cannabis vs. Alcohol, What Cannabis Means to Me, and thoughts about the Future of Cannabis.

The next piece will focus on Cultivation, Cannabis in Other Countries (Holland, Argentina, Uruguay), Regulations Faced by Today’s Farmers, and Future Scenarios requiring Activism if we are to create a Canna-centric society which is a much happier place to be.

Most Americans now understand the medicinal benefits of Cannabis.  As Steve DeAngelo so eloquently put it, “Cannabis is a plant that can guide us to the kinds of thinking that we are going to need going forward.”

This is our latest two-minute trailer:
