Good crop? Bad crop? Now learn the true story of America’s most controversial plant.
From its introduction into our nation’s Colonial cornucopia, to its criminalization in more recent times, HEMPLANDS, a new and unusual documentary film by Patrick McNeese, tells the story of the most amazing and maligned member of the plant kingdom, Cannabis sativa.
This unique and honest film draws on a rich archive of rare historic images as well as the insightful observations by Ken Kesey, Dr. Thomas Clark, Gatewood Galbraith and many others, as it follows the warp and weave of the fascinating, true story of how a simple green plant went from imported cash crop to sinister outlaw, to subsidized war hero, to counterculture dropout and may yet return as an environmentally friendly economic force once again.
