The Hemp Revolution (1995) - Despite the poor production value and the low budget feel, this documentary objectively discusses the origins of hemp laws, its versatile potential as an agricultural industry, and almost on a side note, its place in various cultures as a psychoactive substance.
Pineapple Express (2008) - This stoner movie actually received a Golden Globe nomination for James Franco - Best Performance by an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical.
High: The True Tale of American Marijuana (2008) - This funny straight-to-DVD release uses government statistics and expert interviews to demonstrate how much money is being spent on the drug war.
High Times Presents: The Cannabis Cup (2003) - Forget the state fair. Laid-back marijuana and hashish smokers from across the globe vie for the best bud at Amsterdam's annual Cannabis Cup, dutifully sponsored by High Times magazine.
