This documentary examines marijuana use and culture after legalization in Oregon and Washington. Weed has become far more prevalent in certain communities, while pot use has not changed at all in others. The documentary also looks at dabbing, mole bowls, driving high, the gateway drug theory, addiction, and the current state of cannabis research. University of Washington, University of Oregon, Rural Oregon and inner-city Portland are all featured. Marijuana may be relatively harmless compared to other drugs, but what is dangerous is the culture of marijuana use. It is very socially acceptable to use marijuana all day everyday, whereas other drugs it is not at all. There needs to be more research put in to marijuana and the findings of that research should dictate the future of marijuana culture.
