Mar 25, 2024 | Drugs, News, Political, Videos

In Hamilton Morris’ “Pharmacopeia‎” documentary, viewers are taken on an eye-opening journey to the landlocked Kingdom of Swaziland. Tucked away in the southern region of Africa and surrounded by South Africa and Mozambique, this country is a unique destination not often featured in mainstream media. However, what makes it especially remarkable is its status as one of the few countries in the world with more hectares of land dedicated to growing marijuana than all of India.

Despite this somewhat surprising statistic, cannabis cultivation in Swaziland remains illegal and therefore carries with it a great deal of risk for those who attempt it. This is why Hamilton Morris has chosen to travel there—to document the stories of those brave enough to take on this challenge, analyze local strains of cannabis, and bring attention to the political corruption and economic turmoil that plague this nation.

By combining striking visuals and thoughtful conversations with those living on the ground, Pharmacopeia‎ shines a light on an area rarely explored by outsiders. At times funny, shocking, and heartbreakingly real, Hamilton’s exploration offers viewers a deep dive into a culture that remains shrouded in mystery. As he discovers more about Swaziland’s history and its future prospects, he reveals how cannabis cultivation can both help and hurt communities when pursued under oppressive legal regimes.

Tune in to Pharmacopeia‎ to join Hamilton Morris on his exciting adventure through Swaziland’s underground cannabis industry! With insight into its people’s struggles against poverty and oppression amid a backdrop of breathtaking natural beauty, this gripping documentary will leave you wanting more from its captivating host.
