    Well this is way too long for me to watch right now, but from the first few minutes they talk a lot about hemp. I`d like to skip to the part where they talk about the business of marijuana prohibition.

    As much as I enjoy IAB, I`m not going to spend an hour and 45 minutes watching a video here. I`m here for the quick fix, not an entire movie.

    Yeesh, it`s just a gif of approval. Would any of these not offend your delicate sensibility?

    I`m about 25 minutes in, and from what I can tell this video avoids many of the pitfalls of similar documentaries. So far it has largely avoided using logical fallacies or empty propagandizing. The most cringe-worthy part for me was when they pointed to all the celebrities that have used marijuana as a way of saying "you can still be productive." Even that, though, wasn`t too bad.

    So far, it`s a well reasoned discussion on the topic and up-front about its own bias.

    Hey, guys, I don`t give a poo if it was too long for you to watch. Stick with the Three Stooges shorts, for drat`s sake.

    20 minutes into it, pretty good so far. Obviously it`s pro-legalization but it seem to intelligently dispell the myths while giving coherant, logical arguements and listing facts, not hype.

    I am.... a conservative FOR legalization. Less government telling me what to do is a conservative value.

    Prisons are privatized. They like filling the cells with non-violent pot-convicts. Law Enforcement Unions don`t want it legal, it`s an easy bust for them to up their numbers. Politicians use it as a "morality platform". Tobacco doesn`t want the competition.

    The only people who want it legalized are actual people and we`re not represented by the government.... And Taco Bell `cause it really ups their sales.

    When they start looking at grow operations, it devolves into "pot-porn" a little bit... they just kinda go around looking at pot and going "holy crap, look at all of this pot!" But it looks like the video is starting to get back on track.

    I do. Harshest thing I`ve ever ingested is Mountain Dew.
    I drive a hybrid and I really do want to know if hemp is any good as fuel and what the process is like.
