You are invited to a special one night only screening of WEED THE PEOPLE in Ottawa. Classification: PG
Cannabis has been off-limits to doctors and researchers in the US for the past 80 years, but recently scientists have discovered its anti-cancer properties. From Executive Producer, Ricki Lake and Director, Abby Epstein comes Weed the People - an award-winning documentary that follows five families who are looking for alternatives to treat their children's cancer. Armed with only these laboratory studies, desperate parents take their children's survival into their own hands and obtain cannabis oil from underground sources to save their children. At the heart of the film is the question: If weed is truly saving lives, why doesn't the government want people to access it?
