With their groundbreaking documentary, The Business of Being Born, Ricki Lake & Abby Epstein revolutionized the way people look at childbirth. Now,they’re doing the same for medical cannabis.

Weed the People has the power to truly create change as it exposes the astonishing ways the plant works against cancer and how access to this medicine has become a human rights issue.

Weed the People made its theatrical debut at limited movie theaters across the country in October 2018. The impact of a film about children, health equity and the booming green economy could not have been more timely. Many companies sponsored screenings in their communities, some inviting Ricki and Abby to join them.
