1st Documentary Wednesday - The Business Behind Getting High

Well folks you can now look forward to a fresh new and exciting documentary once a week every Wednesday and don't worry its only the illest of topics, and for my first choice we've got a MUST SEE for all you marijuana enthusiasts out there. The Union: The Business Behind Getting High...

"Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man." –Francis L. Young, Administrative Law Judge

"Ever wonder what British Columbia's most profitable industries are? Logging? Fishing? Tourism? Ever think to include marijuana? If you haven't, think again. No longer a hobby for the stereotypical hippie culture of the ’60s, BC's illegal marijuana trade industry has evolved into a seemingly unstoppable business giant, dubbed by those involved as 'The Union'. Commanding upwards of $7 billion Canadian annually, The Union’s roots stretch far and wide, directly and indirectly affecting all areas of our society. With 65% to 85% of all 'BC Bud' being exported to the United States, it's clear that the BC marijuana trade has become an international issue with consequences that extend far beyond our borders. When there are record profits to be made, who are the players, and when do their motives become questionable?"

•Why is marijuana illegal?
•What health risks do we really face?
•Does prohabition work?
•What would happen if we taxed it?
•Medicine, paper, fuel, textiles, food, etc. Are we missing something here?
