“A keen eye for the how the legislative process works – and doesn’t…Code of the West is a must-see for anyone interested in drug reform and patients’ – or states’ – rights.”
–Jordan Smith, Austin Chronicle

“Captures the full complexity and nuance of the medical marijuana issue without polemics….A wonderful examination of what democracy looks like up close, when citizens acting in good faith fight in support of opposing convictions.”
–Robert MacCoun, Professor of Law and Public Policy, UC Berkeley

“Explores the complexity of the medical marijuana debate currently unfolding in many US states. Richman Cohen’s focus on the human side of the debacle skillfully navigates the nuances of preemption, discretionary enforcement, and other contours of what is one of today’s most interesting regulatory issues. Engaging as it is educational, this film is a powerful tool for exploring the legal, social, and generational facets of today’s drug policy debate.”
–Leo Beletsky, Assistant Professor of Law and Health Sciences, Northeastern University School of Law

  1. Montana Citizen for Cannabis says:

    I Pledge Allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for All.

    READ ON….

    I Promise to be faithful and true (Promise my loyalty)
    to the emblem that stands for and represents all 50 states, each of them INDIVIDUAL, and INDIVIDUALLY represented on the flag
    of America yet formed into a UNION of one Nation.
    and to the Republic (THE PEOPLE) And I also pledge my loyalty to the Government that is itself a Republic (THE PEOPLE) , a form of government where the PEOPLE are sovereign,
    for which it stands, this government also being represented by the Flag to which I promise loyalty. one Nation under God, These 50 individual states are united as a single Republic under the Divine providence of God, (did GOD create Marijuana??? it says so in the bible) “our most powerful resource” (according to the words of President Eisenhower)
    Indivisible, and can not be separated. (This part of the original version of the pledge was written just 30 years after the beginning of the Civil War and demonstrates the unity sought in the years after that divisive period in our history)
    with Liberty The people of this Nation being afforded the freedom to pursue “life, liberty, and happiness”,
    and Justice ….each person entitled to be treated justly, fairly, and according to proper law and principle,
    for All. And these principles afforded to EVERY AMERICAN, regardless of race, religion, color, creed, or any other criteria.

    Just as the flag represents 50 INDIVIDUAL states that can not be divided or separated, this Nation represents millions of people who can not be separated or divided.

    INDIVIDUAL STATES should have the right to make their own individual laws unless they are ruled by a king who sets all the rules for them. Why? Because the PEOPLE voted on it. This nation is not ran by a king, its ran by THE PEOPLE for THE PEOPLE…..and THE PEOPLE voted medical marijuana into law. There are 50 stars on the flag, not just one star, which means all 50 states are individual and individually represented on the flag.
