A Suver Nuver Experience: The Cannabis Foundation Making A Difference

Over the last 7 years I have been fortunate enough to travel to many progressive cannabis nations and learn about the ways other campaigners and activists have approached the battles that their unique circumstances have forced them to adapt to. These trips have been heavily influential on my personal life, my way of thinking and the way I approach my work with the clubs. They are what inspired me to start, continue and constantly evolve as we move forward in ever changing political and social climates towards cannabis.   When…

Portugal – The highs and lows of decriminalisation

Ever fancied visiting Portugal as a tourist?

GrassRoots, cannabis documentary visits the US.

Cannabis, marijuana, weed, grass, bud, pot, kind, reefer. Whatever way you say it people know it. And people also have an opinion on it. Good or bad, for or against, cannabis has an uncanny ability to draw a line in the sand and make people choose a side. This(amongst many other reasons) drew me into making a feature-length documentary about it. And not just cannabis itself, but the world it inhabits. Its patrons. Its patients. Its people. My film GrassRoots explores exactly what the snappy title suggests; at its core…
