Chasing the High

With marijuana sure to be an issue in the next federal election, this CPAC documentary explores the current debate in Canada over a drug that is illegal but widely-used. Examine both the potential and problems of legalization by taking an inside look at the booming industry in Colorado, where stores have been selling recreational marijuana for almost a year. We talk to politicians and police, doctors and medical-marijuana patients, advocates and opponents of legalization, consumers, traffickers and a new breed of “ganga-preneurs” who hope to cash in on the so-called Green Rush.
