This is the klaxon; we hit the final warning, we’re in the last chance saloon. In less than 24 hours, GrassRoots: The Cannabis Revolution will either be funded through your generous altruism, or the project will have to be shelved. This is all or nothing.
The film is so agonisingly close to the finishline, so I would just like to relay the reasons why we need this documentary.
I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside some of the leading ‘drug war’ documentaries that have come out over the last few years, all of which have impacted the debate and left an indelible mark. In a game where we move the ball inch by inch, these films attract some of the biggest audiences we could hope for, and more importantly, can reach outside of the converted circles that we sometimes dwell in. As we face a new government, it’s likely that we’re going to need every tool in our box to prize open the door to reform.
Documentaries work. They provide a raft to publicity and further discourse. They allow sideshows, and they can make waves in the media. Film and imagery is hard to ignore; they inherently raise the bar of activism. GrassRoots has the chance to present an aspect of the ‘drug war’ that until now has been overlooked, or worse, been dealt with through scorn and cynicism.
If we’re committed to taking the debate onwards and towards the destination needed, then please, let’s do this. Let’s have that GrassRoots Revolution.
As retired Chief Constable, Tom Lloyd, says, “Successive governments have ignored the compelling evidence for drug law reform, refusing to allow legal access to cannabis for adults and legal access to cannabis for medicinal use for all. This film reveals the huge financial, social and personal costs of perpetuating this damaging, failed policy. Support this film and help to improve millions of lives.”
