Colorado is the ground zero of ganja. The politics, the culture, the media, the medicinal, the recreational, the educational, the economical — all facets of our community are seeing the effects — both positive and negative, following legalization on January 1st, 2014. So, The Denver Documentary Collective (DDC), along with The Denver Post's newest sub-site The Cannabist, are shooting a feature length documentary film about the normalization of the marijuana industry in our home state. Your support will go toward finishing production and prepare the creators to hit the festival circuit.
