Other cannabis shows
Weed the People
While many states are now fighting for the legalization of recreational cannabis, many people had to make an even harder fight for medical use for themselves or their children. Filmmaker Abby Epstein and TV host Ricki Lake, along with the crew at Netflix, follow pediatric cancer patients who have used medical cannabis and their families who have fought extremely hard for them to get the treatment that helps them. In addition to the patients, the hosts also speak with cannabis doctors and professionals who wholeheartedly offer their unwavering support for the medical use of cannabis.
Grass is Greener
This documentary, available on Netflix, takes a deep dive into the history of cannabis and cannabis prohibition in the U.S. through the lens of music and race. Hosted by hip-hop legend Fab 5 Freddy, Grass is Greener features a host of celebrity guests such as Snoop Dogg, Chuck D., and Damien Marley. The film opens with music and weed icons of the jazz age, including Louis Armstrong and Count Basie, and the government’s push to ban cannabis. It also highlights how films like Reefer Madness and other racist propaganda were used to push the narrative of the “dangers” of cannabis. The history of cannabis in America has long been intertwined with the music of America and Munchies takes a look at how race has played into the entire narrative.
Murder Mountain is a Netflix documentary about the dark side of Humboldt County (California) legends and the mysterious number of people who go missing within its borders. From the outside, Humboldt County has long been seen as a green fantasy land brimming with high-quality cannabis at every turn. Full of striking footage throughout the Emerald Triangle, Murder Mountain closely follows the case of 29-year-old Garret Rodriguez, who was found murdered there in 2013. While some locals feel the documentary smears the name of Humboldt County, Murder Mountain shines a light on an otherwise hushed part of the quiet community.
Have a Good Trip
While not necessarily about cannabis, Netflix’s Have a Good Trip is a movie about the use of psychedelics and celebrities telling their stories about their experiences using them. First aired in 2020, Have a Good Trip is hosted by Nick Offerman (Ron Swanson) as he interviews a vast array of A-and-B-list celebrities as they share their hilarious experiences with psychedelics. Even if you’re not into them yourself, it is very entertaining to watch while stoned.
