21 Sep Seeing Green. A Film About Perspective, Family and Weed
CLEAR is proud to present a new campaign film, in partnership with the filmmaker Tom McNie, whose work paints a portrait of cannabis use among ordinary British families, in ordinary British households up and down the country.
As the law stands; these characters – whose actions, rather than an act of curiosity or need – have made them criminals, face prison and an unlimited fine. Such is the prevalence of cannabis in British society that these laws have become untenable, with former Metropolitan Police Chief Bernard Hogan-Howe urging for reform and, in 2018, Mike Barton, Durham Chief of Police arguing that the prohibition of cannabis damages public safety, puts users in more danger and gives billions of pounds to organised crime and gangsters which in turn drives knife crime and county lines exploitation.
We hope that this film shines a spotlight on the issue and fosters positive debate about cannabis use in Britain.
Enjoy the film. Share it with friends and family and help us put an end to criminalisation of cannabis consumers. Let’s get the dealers off the streets and into regulated, licensed retailers for a safer, healthier Britain.
