    Subject: Grass better than review claims
    Date: Aug 23, 2004
    Sender: xxdr_zombiexxPrevious | Next

    Grass is billed as mostly "entertainment" and it is most entertaining, but it is a vastly better film than this reviewer thinks.

    It is not a "Fahrenhiet 911"-style slam-dunk on the issue, becuase it does tippy-toe around the glaring political realities that the war on drugs is simply a money-laundering scam for law enforcement and the feds. It is, however, most accurate nonetheless.

    It does a sufficient and comendable job of describing the general history of reefer madness as the core of the war on drugs and it shows that reefer madeness is just that - insanity. Building laws on lies is the basic truth of reefer madness.

    There is no reason for this plant to be illega, let alone demonized or used to blow hundreds of billions of dollars supporting unneeded law enforcement officers.

    And Grass was released before 9/11 so we dont get to see how quickly marijuana was equated with terrorism, the next leap in Reefer madness.

    It's a much better and more useful film than this review asserts.

    Get it and see it. If you are an activist like myself, it's required viewing.
