Prof. Doherty, who promised to give me an F if I didn´t return the video for my paper topic: ¨Touch of Evil¨ (1958), told me my ¨Smoke¨ paper was publish-able. ¨But you have to make it a little longer,¨ he said, his lips dragging the¨O¨ out like I wrote a 2 page composition.
This national Geographic documentary is a surprisingly good investigation into issues of marijuana. It shows how the shipment and sale of ¨trees¨isn´t just something U.S. rappers (and their constituents ) are interested in. It´s also something being watched across the pond, as evidenced by a raid on a grow house in England, that the doc features.
The documentary, which is narrated and reported by Lisa Ling (I promise this is better than the one where she went ¨searching¨for MS-13), also talks about the ways marijuana affects the brain, and how it plays into politics.
