Cannabis Science and Technology

Cannabis Science and Technology’s editor-in-chief will be hosting a special screening of the documentary Weed the People on January 8, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. The screening will be held at Cinemark Hazlet 12 in Hazlet, New Jersey.

The documentary was produced by Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein and has a score of 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. The film description is as follows:

"Cannabis has been off-limits to doctors and researchers in the US for the past 80 years, but recently scientists have discovered its anti-cancer properties. Armed with only these laboratory studies, desperate parents obtain cannabis oil from underground sources to save their children from childhood cancers. Weed the People follows these families through unchartered waters as they take their children’s survival into their own hands. Some of their miraculous outcomes beget the unsettling question at the heart of the film: If weed is truly saving lives, why doesn’t the government want people to access it?"

Tickets for the New Jersey screening must be purchased in advance by January 1, 2019. The event will only take place if enough tickets are sold and ticketholders will not be charged until the ticket threshold is met.
