Watch: Just in Time for 4/20, Trailer for Montana Marijuana Legal Fight Doc 'Code of the West'

As a part of the annual national celebrations of cannabis appreciation on April 20, Rebecca Richman Cohen’s “Code of the West” will screen across the country, with Q&A’s with local policy experts in special Colorado and Washington, DC screenings, and is now available on iTunes. 

The film, which follows the case of a legislative push to end the state’s medical marijuana program in Montana, also chronicled the arrest of one of the film’s major subjects, marijuana grower Tom Daubert (who was arrested with three of his colleagues in a Department of Justice-sponsored raid of the state’s legal marijuana growing industry).

To see socially-regressive, sanctimonious neanderthals—falsely touting church, God, nationalism, or patriotism—denigrate, bully, threaten, and murder the ill and dying for choosing to exercise their right to self-medicate with one of God's most medically efficacious plants.

To see our prisons filled to budget-busting capacity on the false pretense of protecting people from themselves.

To see the selective targeting and destruction of African-American families and African-American communities.

To see the lives and livelihoods of tens of millions of Americans destroyed or severely disrupted.

To see our society spiral downwards into a dark abyss, while shady corporate entities exponentially enrich themselves.

These are the dimensions of prohibition; which are terrifying and unconscionable; which are morally repugnant.

Prohibition is a nasty business.

Prohibition is about violence.

Prohibition is about suffering.
