This is the first of two full-length programs, 'Hemplands' and 'The Hempire Strikes Back', featuring rare photos, film and video along with an unprecedented collection of interviews and appearances with the best-known, most credible Hemp and agriculture authorities in the world today.
From its introduction, to its sinister criminalization in more recent times,
this two part series tells the shocking story of the most amazing and maligned member of the plant kingdom, Cannabis sativa.
This series features a rich archive of rare historic images and insightful
observations by Ken Kesey, Dr. Thomas Clark, Gatewood Galbraith, Jack Herer
Woody Harrelson, Bill Maher and many others who follow the warp and weave of
this fascinating, true story of how a simple green plant went from important
cash crop to sinister outlaw, to subsidized war hero, to counterculture
dropout and may yet return as an environmentally friendly economic force once again.
