POT DOC

Grass Is Greener

Fab 5 Freddy retells the story of cannabis prohibition from a black perspective. Since the director is known for his work as an early VJ on MTV (Yo! MTV Raps), much of the movie is musical in nature, covering the reggae explosion of the '70s and the hip-hop revolution of the ’80s and ’90s. Snoop DoggDamian Marley, Darryl McDaniels (Run-DMC), B-Real (Cypress Hill) and Killer Mike are among the featured musical talking heads. But Freddy’s doc has a more serious focus: The racist War on Drugs that has incarcerated hundreds of thousands of blacks and Hispanics (mostly men) on drug charges since the ’70s. Netflix
