SPECIAL ONE-DAY SCREENING on 4/20 at 4:20! At a time when the world is rethinking its drug policies large and small, one state rises to the forefront. Once a pioneer in legalizing medical marijuana, the state of Montana may now become the first to repeal its medical marijuana law. Set against the sweeping vistas of the Rockies, the steamy lamplight of marijuana grow houses, and the bustling halls of the State Capitol, CODE OF THE WEST follows the political process of marijuana policy reform - and the recent federal crackdown on medical marijuana growers across the country. This is the story of what happens when politics fail, emotions run high and communities pay the price. Co-presented with Americans for Safe Access (ASA), Drug Policy Alliance (DPA), Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), Marijuana Policy Project (MPP) and Students for Sensible Drug Policy (SSDP). Includes a Q&A with Leigh Maddox, Esq., LEAP Speaker/Maryland State Police Captain; Robert Capecchi, Deputy Director of State Policies, MPP; and Mike Liszewski, Policy Director, ASA!
