Filmmaker Adam Scorgie’s documentary The Union: The Business Behind Getting High will soon be available on DVD.
From the press release,
THE UNION is a documentary film which follows filmmaker Adam Scorgie as he demystifies the underground market and brings to light how the marijuana industry can function while remaining illegal. Through interviews with growers, police officers, criminologists, economists, doctors, politicians and pop culture icons, such as Joe Rogan and Tommy Chong, Scorgie examines the cause and effect nature of the business – an industry that may be profiting more by being illegal.
The film also stars Cannabis Culture editor and publisher Marc Emery, as well as other CC friends and contributors.
I haven’t seen it yet, but will let you know what I think once I get my screener copy!
