â€śTHE MOST POWERFUL and important documentary on the drug war to date.â€ť - LEAP (LAW ENFORCEMENT AGAINST PROHIBITION)
Every war has unintended victims and itâ€™s the children who are losing Americaâ€™s longest running war. After surviving brain surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, a 2-year-old boy lay in a coma not eating for over 40 days. His parents are told to make funeral arrangements. However, his father had read about a version of an ancient drug made from cannabis. Unbeknownst to the hospital staff, the parents start secretly injecting the illegal drug into their dying sonâ€™s feeding tube and soon a â€śmiracleâ€ť takes place. When the doctors are told that cannabis was the cause of the â€śmiracle,â€ť they are speechless.
Director Kevin Booth navigates through the latest cutting edge research on cannabis. He also explores the real issues of the drug war from cartel recruiting grounds in Mexico â€“ to US foster children being over medicated on pharmaceuticals. Is it a conspiracy, or simple profit motives that continue to keep marijuana inside the black market? (Dir. by Kevin Booth, 2013, USA, 90 mins., Not Rated)
