Movie Info

Weed. Marijuana. Grass. Pot. Whatever you prefer to call it, America's relationship with cannabis is a complicated one. In his directorial debut, hip hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy (Yo! MTV Raps) presents an unparalleled look at the racially biased history of the war on marijuana. Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill's B-Real, and Damian Marley join a range of celebrities and experts who discuss the plant's influence on music and popular culture, and the devastating impact its criminalization has had on black and Latino communities. As more and more states join the push to legalize marijuana, Grass is Greener dives deep into the glaring racial disparities in the growing cannabis market. Features interviews with Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill's B-Real and Sen Dog, DMC, Doug E. Fresh, Chuck D, Damian Marley, Killer Mike and more.

  • I'm glad what will inevitably be referred to as "the Netflix weed doc" is largely about the war on drugs' outsized effect on radicalized communities and the current intense discrimination with regards to the burgeoning legal market.

  • Whether you are a cannabis fan or not, Grass Is Greener will convince you that weed should be legal, for more than just a new revenue stream for states.

  • In Greener's view, until those most affected by the War on Drugs are put in a position to directly benefit from legalization, it's not really accomplishing anything at all.

    Apr 21, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • Fab 5 Freddie sheds light on myths, political propaganda surrounding sales, legalization and myths of cannabis and how it has aided in financially incentivizing incarceration. Insightful, educational and infuriating at how this myth has thrived
