We believe it’s vital to amplify voices that often go unheard, especially those of young people, whose opinions are frequently overlooked or disregarded. In the past year, we’ve spoken to teens about the assault on their reproductive rights, explored youth activism through our annual Youth Video Contest, and hosted a series of conversations with young people that highlight the issues that are important to them.
On 420, we present some highlights from our conversation with Jordan Davidson of SAM (Smart Approaches to Marijuana), who suffered from marijuana addiction as a teen. Our conversation explores the “big business” of pot: normalization of use, social justice implications, environmental concerns, and political ramifications introduced in our 2020 film, Pot Luck.
In these clips, Jordan shares his path to and struggle with addiction to pot, the “non-addictive” drug, which can be viewed here, as well as the dangers of predatory capitalism and what we aren't being told about this burgeoning industry, seen here.
To learn more, watch our feature documentary Pot Luck.
These conversations would not be possible without viewers like YOU. Donate here and help us continue to amplify the diverse voices of our young people. Enjoy 420!
