Movie Info

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.(c) Official Site

Critic Reviews for Code Of The West

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

A mostly dutiful documentary that drifts dangerously close to earnestness.

March 28, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Engrossing, compassionate documentary about the fight over medical marijuana in Montana.

March 28, 2013 | Full Review…

The filmmaker's failure of empathy for those who strive to outlaw medicinal marijuana turns the protestors into hissable puritanical bad guys.

Audience Reviews for Code Of The West

Code of the West is a pretty insightful little documentary about what goes on in the background of marijuana law reforms. This one follows Montana as a group tries to repeal the medical marijuana law that the people voted for. Code of the West does a good job looking at both sides of the issue and remaining unbiased even when it seems like that would be hard to do. The head spokeswoman for the group that is trying to repeal the law is truly as ignorant as they come. This is a great film for anyone who is really into the topic. For anyone whose not it will probably be very boring. It's dry for the most part and really is just an informative documentary and is not one who looks to entertain anyone who is outside of the target audience. For me, someone who is very into the marijuana topic in any form, I really enjoyed this one. I do wish it was slightly longer though.
