“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
