‘Grass: The History of Marijuana’ is a funny yet serious film made by veteran filmmaker Ron Mann, who maps out the terrible loss in imprisoned lives and billions of dollars wasted fighting a drug that is relatively harmless and refuses to go away.

Marijuana is the most controversial drug of the twentieth century, smoked by generations of musicians, students and workers to little apparent ill effect.

Ron recounts how this drug came to be despised by the vast majority of governments around the world.

The film features excellent presentation, crisp editing, sharp script and an extraordinary soundtrack ranging from the Swing Era’s “Reefer Man” through Dylan’s ‘Rainy Day Women’ to the hippie lament “One Toke Over The Line”, highlighting Ron’s remarkable production values.
