New Film Documents Cannabis Community Calamities
The Community Coalition Members at DrugFree Idaho took their talent and initiative and put together a beautiful film contrasting the beauties of nature with the communities which have collapsed after unwisely legalizing an illicit drug.
“Many people moving to Idaho for the great outdoors, safe communities, and quality of life are leaving behind cities ruined by a drug culture, homelessness, addiction, and crime. We created this documentary to educate Idahoans and others about the impacts drug normalization has within communities,” says Rob Stevenson of Drug Free Idaho.
We encourage you to carve out an hour to see this important film. Please share it with your representatives and policy makers in your community and other influential citizens. It is information like this that can turn the public against cannabis commercialization efforts.
