Catch a sneak preview of the new documentary "Medicinal" here in Sacramento prior to its world premiere at Cannes!
Location: 600 4th St, West Sacramento. That's the corner of 4th & F in West Sacramento, just over the river from downtown.
In 1996, the legalization of medical marijuana was approved by the citizens of California, and the DEA has been at war with the clinics ever since. This is costing the taxpayers of California millions of dollars each year. "Medicinal" is an educational, "talking head" documentary which takes a look at the history and current status of medical marijuana laws, mostly in California and in relation to Prop 215. Features Joe Elford, Dale Gierenger, Dennis Peron, Bruce Margolin, Ed Rosenthal, Jane Klein, Dean Weiss, Jon Gettman, Don Duncan and Michael Teague. The timing of this is particularly relevant here - in March, Sacramento County rejected issuing medical ID cards, refusing to join the other 40 counties in the state who currently do.
Director Dan Frank is planned to be in attendance for a Q&A.
