Weed the People

The Film

Exploring the medical use of cannabis
in the treatment of children with cancer.
A film By Ricki Lake & Abby Epstein.

A film about Weed?
Not Quite. Filmmakers Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake take an unflinching look at the underground world of herbal medicine, where patients become experts on their own conditions and spend thousands of dollars on federally illegal medicines that are concocted in suburban kitchens.

Nowhere is this phenomenon more compelling than in the treatment of children, whose parents will stop at nothing to help them.

Weed the People looks beyond pot-activist propaganda and politics to reveal the legitimate science behind cannabis medicine and the compelling stories of ordinary people whose lives are inescapably caught up in the controversy.

"Inspirational. There will be tears of joy with the film's multiple success stories."
Film Journal International
"‘Weed The People’ will challenge everything you thought you knew about medical marijuana."
"Ricki Lake’s ‘Weed The People’ proves once and for all that marijuana can save lives."
