Great documentary...and I mean truly spectacular...
In my opinion this is the MOST educated, BEST put together documentary on this subject. Super High Me is good to burn herb to and get a good laugh,
but it doesn't touch on the issues seriously or in an educated way. It's a comedy. Not a documentary.
The Union is good because they are interviewing doctors, politicians, authors, physicists... not the traditional stoner stereotypes types, you know
what I mean?
For any documentary to work it has to appeal and reach out to THE ONES WHO ARE AGAINST CANNABIS. If a self respecting, informed cannabis user sits
down and watches it, they're not learning anything they don't already know. It's the politicians, the stuffed up suits and ties, the misinformed,
the cannabis haters.... THAT'S who the documentaries should be aimed at. And The Union gives it to you straight and fact based... with cold hard
first hand proof in some cases (the poor dude with multiple sclerosis who uses medical cannabis).
I don't know why ATS has this no cannabis discussion rule, but I will say nice and loud that it's fuggin' STUPID... especially when the "War on
Drugs" (which in reality is the "War on Cannabis") is one of the biggest conspiracies of all times.
(no, I'm not your typical stoner... I love cannabis and the cannabis culture for deeper reasons than "getting a buzz." It's a medicinal,
philosophical, wonderful plant and if you don't agree then you need to take 30 minutes out of your ATS time and research the plant. DARE class and
commercials on the tele doesn't count. I recommend you start with why it was made illegal in the first place... that should strike a chord with
EVERY single member of the ATS community by the very nature of this being a conspiracy site. It is one of those things that the public was unaware of
at the time, but in retrospect we have documentation, proof, and the FACTS as to what was going on. It's sort of (if not exactly like) a black ops
project that has gone legit and now we have all the facts.)
