World Premiere of HIGH: The True Tale of American Marijuana
Beyond the hysteria of "Reefer Madness" and past the deceptive lessons of Just Say No, HIGH exposes the true story of Americas war on drugs. Using government statistics, expert interviews and a large dose of humor, HIGH takes a fresh look at this hot button issue and asks just how much this war costs the American taxpayer, an important question to ask in our current economic crisis.
How the U.S. government operates, often knowingly misinforming the public, and who benefits from its policies is an important question for every citizen, regardless of political party. Director John Holowach provides both the necessary historical background and current events for sober answers on marijuana and the DEAs impact on peoples health and well-being in our modern society in his first documentary, HIGH.
It includes a violent drug treatment program that tortured children; an overbearing drug czar that doesn't care for the people he hurts in his quest; patients who are being denied the medications they need; doctors being prosecuted for trying to help them; and a substance that we all know of, but nobody wants to talk about
