My rating: 7.5
The film is excellent. It is in favor of legalization and you won’t see anything much against the drug in the film. But since I support the legalization myself, I had a whole lot of entertainment watching it. It was also very informative, even if single sided.
There were lots of historical video footage, quotes, references, and suggestions in the film. I am making now a list of things to follow-up. What else can I ask from a documentary?
