NatGeo: Marijuana Nation

Reporting from secret farms and not-so-secret grow houses of marijuana cultivators, Lisa Ling goes where pot is not just a drug but a way of life.

    Oaksterdam, ha ha… I’ll have to visit there next time I am in the Bay Area!

    I’m curious about how old this video is… I know that I heard that Marc Emery did get arrested and was awaiting extradition to the US. You can read about it on his wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marc_Emery

    It’s unfortunate that the Conservative government that Canada has had for the last 5 years or so has a very strong anti-drug policy that is more inline with the US Federal policy.

    Yes, I thought some of their stats were from the early 2000s… although I thought the documentary is quite new. Don’t know for sure…

    ya, if you read that wiki entry I mentioned, it lists this doc as Dec 2008 so a couple years old.
