While California is going bankrupt, one business is booming. How Weed Won the West is the story of the growing Medical Marijuana industry in the greater Los Angeles area, with over 700 dispensaries doling out the buds. Following the story of Organica, a southland dispensary owned by Jeff Joseph that was raided by the DEA in August of ’09, the film shows that although much has changed with Obama in office, the War on Drugs is nowhere near over.
From Kevin Booth, the producer/director of Showtime’s American Drug War, How Weed Won the West shows how California could be an example to the rest of the country by showing how legalizing marijuana can benefit the economy.
Starring Alex Jones, Ethan Nadlemann, Craig X Rubin, Doug Stanhope, Jeff Joseph, Theresa Blaylock, Don Duncan, Bill Kroger, and more.
