Evergreen : the road to legalization( Visual )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 414 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evergreen( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After a 40-year-old nationwide 'War on Drugs' the state of Washington becomes a key battleground in the fight to legalize marijuana. But many advocates of legalization are opposed to Initiative 502, the law that will permit the growing, sale and use of cannabis. They say it will impose harsh DUI laws, new taxes, additional restrictions and penalties that will hurt medical marijuana patients and providers. These unexpected opposing forces make Evergreen a scintillating inside look at a political clash that exposes the economic and human impact of marijuana legalization."An engrossing behind-the-scenes look at how Washington state went from a politically polarized battleground to be one of the first states to pave the way for drug reform." - Denver Post. "This dual focus on the need to end the ineffective, destructive 'war on drugs' and broader questions of political compromise gives 'Evergreen' particular resonance." - Variety. "A fascinating case study in the promise and perils of ballot-box democracy, and the give-and-take nature of social progress." - Salon. "Excellent...mandatory viewing for anyone who takes marijuana legalization seriously." - Just Activism. "A fascinating, extraordinarily well-researched and executed doc." - Filmmaker Magazine. "A compelling look inside not only the war on drugs but the grueling process of civic reform in today's culture - a primer on how difficult it is to institute real change in contemporary America." - This Week in New York
