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.

We are excited that Weed the People will make its theatrical debut at limited movie theaters across the country starting in New York City on October 26.

The impact of a film about children, health equity and the booming green economy could not be more timely. AND YOU CAN BE A PART OF THE MOMENTUM!

Sponsor a screening during the theatrical run that will open people’s minds and hearts to the healing power of Cannabis.
