From the frontlines of the battle to legalize marijuana comes “American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny.” The November 2012 elections saw pot being fully legalized in two states. Meanwhile, thousands of Americans in places like Texas and Florida continue to be arrested. The film asks the question on every pot smokers’ mind: what happens next? “American Drug War 2” has something for even the hardened pot activists and is already being revered as one of the most important marijuana documentaries to date. The film follows the traumatic story of a young boy named Cash Hyde who is repeatedly denied cannabis oil, the only medicine that appears to shrink his brain tumor. ADW2 also documents the saga of filmmaker Booth and his wife becoming foster parents and encountering the over prevalent use of pharmaceuticals on foster kids. These stories and much more underline the film’s theme of children being the ultimate victims of American drug policy.
