Journeying across the North American landscape, “The Culture High” is a riveting story that tears into the very fiber of modern day marijuana prohibition to reveal the truth behind the arguments and motives governing both those who support and those who oppose the existing pot laws. With budgets to fight the drug war reaching billions and arrests for simple possession skyrocketing to nearly a million annually, the debate over marijuana’s legality has reached epic proportions. Utilizing the quirky yet profound nature of its predecessor, “The Union: The Business Behind Getting High”, “The Culture High” raises the stakes with some of today’s biggest names, unprecedented access to footage previously unobtainable, and incredibly moving testimonials from both sides of the spectrum. “The Culture High” features Sir Richard Branson, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, controversially insightful comedian Joe Rogan, The Young Turks host Cenk Uyger, Al Jazeera’s TechKnow host Cara Santa Maria, and many more.

“Cannabis prohibition has become a direct reflection of the most basic patterns in human behavior and is one of the largest examples of the human species’ propensity to either pull together or drive itself apart based on the pursuit of control. These characteristics do not lie in the plant itself but in the oddities that surface when attempting to control ‘preference’ and ‘self risk’ on a massive scale. ‘The Culture High’ is a film that is necessary, not just for understanding the evolution and framework of the most costly war ever waged within North American society, but for gaining a grasp of who we are as a society and determining what exactly it is we’re attempting to do here. By providing an entertaining and humorous, yet profound, platform from which to draw from, ‘The Culture High’ will change the proficiency of dialogue in the political spectrum and broaden the North American public’s understanding of why it receives the results it does from the actions it currently takes.” – Brett Harvey
