What Are You Smoking? Episode 60: Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein Talk Weed the People

In their new documentary Weed the People, executive producer Ricki Lake and director Abby Epstein explore the impact that medical cannabis is having on pediatric cancers, as well as the difficulties parents, doctors, and caregivers face in putting these treatments into action.

We talked with Lake and Epstein about their experience making the film, what it’s taught them about the potential of medical cannabis, and how that potential squares with the booming recreational cannabis market and how it colors perceptions of cannabis.
