Weed the People screening Hosted by Roanoke Valley NORML (VA) January 29 2019
Join Virginia NORML for a screening of the celebrated documentary about families who use medical cannabis to survive, “Weed the People.”
“Weed the People” is filmmakers Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake’s unflinching look at the underground world of herbal medicine, where patients become experts on their own conditions and spend thousands of dollars on federally illegal medicines that are concocted in suburban kitchens. Nowhere is this phenomenon more compelling than in the treatment of children, whose parents will stop at nothing to help them.
“Weed the People” reveals the legitimate science behind cannabis medicine and the compelling stories of ordinary people whose lives are inescapably caught up in the controversy.

The event is sponsored by Inside Out Inc. Counter Culture Specialty Store, which is located at 2819 Williamson Rd in Roanoke.
All proceeds go to benefit Virginia NORML, the organization doing the work to get marijuana laws changed in the Commonwealth.
