10.28 | 'Weed the People' Screening

Cannabis has been off-limits to doctors and researchers in the US for the past 80 years, but recently scientists have discovered its anti-cancer properties. Armed with only these laboratory studies, desperate parents obtain cannabis oil from underground sources to save their children from childhood cancers. 'Weed the People' follows these families through uncharted waters as they take their children’s survival into their own hands. Some of their miraculous outcomes beget the unsettling question at the heart of the film: If weed is truly saving lives, why doesn’t the government want people to access it?

The 1:30pm screening this Sunday at Village East Cinema will be followed by a panel discussion with Director Ricki Lake, Executive Producer Abby Epstein and The Alchemist's Kitchen / Bowery Cannabis Club CEO, Lou Sagar.
