Year of Mari©huana

Summary

The documentary film captures the issues of cannabis, possibilities and limits of its use for medical purposes, and it follows a series of characters, who are engaged in the issue of the plant in a variety of ways. There is Professor Hanuš, who looks at the matter through the eyes of a scientist, and on the other hand, the activist Dušan Dvořák (a founder of the movement “Cannabis is medicine”). The film also follows a number of patients with diagnosis of cancer or multiple sclerosis, who undergo the treatment with cannabis. A significant part of the film is also a "field trip" to the official hemp greenhouse in Israel, where they cultivate this plant in a very sophisticated way, and then they distribute it free of charge to patients with appropriate authorization. The film also shows the sight of high-ranking politicians and police officers not only from the Czech Republic. Interpretations of addictologist, conferences in Parliament or shots from the march of Million Marihuana March and other demonstrations and a trial with Dušan Dvořák are also captured in the film. The author of the story and the film's producer is a patient, whom doctors diagnosed with a tumor in his eye. His interest in the possibilities of treatment of cancer led him to the healing effects of cannabis.
