Cannabis Chronicles tells the story of the world’s most popular illegal drug, the movements to legalize it, and how it has changed — and is changing — our culture. The five-part series will be the first big-picture social history of cannabis, the ultimate pot doc.
It’s an extraordinary story, full of twists and turns, ironies and dark sides, transformation and triumph. We follow the arc of cannabis as it rises and falls and rises again — from hemp and ganja in ancient times to modern prohibition and the Sixties explosion; from Reagan’s War on Drugs to the rise of medical marijuana and discovery of our body’s own endocannabinoid system.
Nothing like this project exists and the time is right. Stay tuned for updates on our progress. There is no dedicated website yet. If you’d like to see the sample reel, have anything to contribute, or want to know more, please get in touch at: mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org.
