29 Aug VIDEO: ‘The Scientist’.

This film carries my highest recommendation.

There are a number of excellent documentary films about cannabis which for those of us interested in the subject make enthralling viewing. This is also the great weakness of movies like ‘The Culture High’ and ‘In Pot We Trust’ – they are all preaching to the choir and, certainly for non-consumers of cannabis or people without a special interest, they are far too long.

This excellent documentary on the life and work of Raphael Mechoulam is a breath of fresh air. For an old cannabis hack like me who has seen it all, read it all and discussed it all, ad nauseam, it gave me new information and insights – and it’s only an hour long. It’s well worth sixty minutes of your time.
