Baked by the River is excited to be sponsoring Weed the People – a film by Abby Epstein and Ricki Lake – at the ACME Screening Room!

Cannabis has been off-limits to doctors and researchers in the US for the past 80 years, but recently scientists have discovered its anti-cancer properties.

Armed with only these laboratory studies, desperate parents obtain cannabis oil from underground sources to save their children from childhood cancers. “Weed the People” follows these families through uncharted waters as they take their children’s survival into their own hands. Some of their miraculous outcomes beget the unsettling question at the heart of the film: If weed is truly saving lives, why doesn’t the government want people to access it?

Join us for a post-screening virtual discussion with Mara Gordon, a cannabis advocate, entrepreneur, and researcher who also appears in the film.

Tickets and information are available through the ACME Screening Room website below.
