Movie Info

Tracking the behind-the-scenes efforts of both the pro- and anti-initiative groups, the film serves as a case study for other states in determining how to reform their own drug policies, and examines the civic, economic and human impact of marijuana legalization. Against the backdrop of the 40-year-old 'War on Drugs', the state of Washington becomes a key battleground in the fight for cannabis prohibition reform. A growing medical pot industry paves the way for cultural change, while an unprecedented team of political superstars and local celebrities put forth a plan, known as Initiative 502, that they hope will balance the delicate politics of the region and stand a chance to pass in the November elections.

Critic Reviews for Evergreen: The Road to Legalization in Washington

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (10) | Rotten (2)

  • A taut, thorough chronicle of the 2012 campaign to pass Initiative 502 - which proposed legalizing possession of small amounts of marijuana for recreational use - "Evergreen" is an energetic study of a hard-fought battle.

    June 26, 2014 | Rating: 3.5/4
  • Portraying emotion and devil's advocacy are this balanced film's strong suits.

  • Dual focus on the need to end the ineffective, destructive "war on drugs" and broader questions of political compromise gives director Riley Morton's film particular resonance.

  • A fascinating case study in the promise and perils of ballot-box democracy, and the give-and-take nature of social progress.

    June 11, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Because the battle for legalization is still being fought in most other states, the lack of an up-to-date perspective is frustrating.
