A NORML LIFE

SHORT SYNOPSIS:

A documentary on the current state of medical marijuana in America . Personal stories from patients, doctors and caregivers verify its medical effectiveness while leading activist rally support to end prohibition.

LONG SYNOPSIS:

NORML or the National Organization of the Reform for Marijuana Laws has advocated for the decriminalization of cannabis for over 40 years. Its founder, current leaders and nationwide chapter representatives describe the patchwork of state and municipal laws that allow the sale of medical marijuana, while the federal government still regards cannabis as a dangerous narcotic.

Voters in the U.S. are increasingly recognizing the positive aspects of accepting and controlling medical marijuana in their communities for its medicinal benefits, as well as for its potential to generate needed tax revenue.

A NORML LIFE shares the personal stories and testimonies attesting to the efficacy of medicinal marijuana from those who are suffering from chronic illnesses. To what extent should we allow the government to legislate over personal freedoms and liberties with regard to our health and treatment?

MORE ABOUT THE FILM:

NORML is the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, and has been leading the effort to legalize marijuana since 1965. In the film, the filmmakers visit locations such as California , Oregon , Washington and Washington , D.C. where cannabis medicine is being regulated for patients. Many interviews were made at Seattle 's Hempfest 2010 and at recent NORML conferences.

Interviews with doctors who treat and patients who suffer from physical and debilitating conditions explain that pharmaceutical medicines are often ineffective and produce dangerous side effects to their conditions. Most turn to cannabis in desperation only to discover pain and psychological relief, physical improvement and often a reversal of pathology. U.S. and international clinical studies contain overwhelming positive evidence that the numerous cannabanoid compounds found in marijuana have constructive properties and may be the key to the future of the plant as a medicine.
