With 4/20 just days away, Netflix shares the official trailer for its new cannabis documentary, Grass Is Greener. Serving as the directorial debut for hip-hop pioneer Fab 5 Freddy, the picture delves into America’s complicated relationship with weed.
Grass Is Greener includes interviews and insights from Snoop Dogg, Cypress Hill’s B-Real and Sen Dog, DMC, Doug E. Fresh, Chuck D, Damian Marley, Killer Mike, and more, as they discuss marijuana’s influence on music and pop culture, as well as the war on drugs that is deeply rooted in racial injustice. The criminalization of cannabis has long since had a devastating impact on black and Latino communities, but now as more and more states begin to legalize medicinal and recreational marijuana, we hope the racial disparities in the market will cease to exist.
Press play above for a taste of Netflix’s Grass Is Greener documentary, which comes to the streaming platform this Saturday, April 20.
