New marijuana documentary can be a game-changer

I am honored and thrilled to announce that The Culture High, the sequel to the award-winning documentary The Union, is set to be shown at Carmike 10 in Asheville on Monday, Oct. 20, at 7:30 p.m.

The Culture High explores the motives of cannabis prohibitions from cultural and political points of view. It features Snoop Dogg, Joe Rogan, Sir Richard Branson, Wiz Khalifa and many others. Many people nationwide are organizing grassroots showings because this is about freedom.

More people, from all political points of view, are now understanding the war on cannabis has only hurt society. By attending, you tell our “leaders” that “We the People” are tired of the Schedule One Narcotic classification for cannabis (which laughably says “no medical benefit”) and that it must end now!

This is more than just a movie. It is about our family members who need the medicine that cannabis brings. It is about our friends being wrongly put in jail for victimless crimes in this unwinnable war. It is about our country benefiting from what legalized cannabis and hemp can bring.

Visit and tickets. Bring friends. It takes all of us to make change happen.

  1. I’d like to thank The Mountain Xpress for publishing my letter. I need at least 69 tickets sold before October 13to be able to show the movie. That’s 35 people buying two tickets each. Certainly there’s more, way more than 35 of us in the region who think out cannabis laws are totally out of whack with science and common sense.

    The Culture High has already been accepted to four international film festivals with more expected. There are currently 18 screenings scheduled nationally, with more to come.

    Don’t just sit at home and wish change happens. Be there and help make it happen!
