Texas NORML to screen American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny
Texas NORML is inviting everyone to attend their screening of American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny.
Director Kevin Booth navigates through the cutting edge of cannabis research while becoming a foster parent to a child court ordered to take powerful mind altering drugs.
After surviving brain surgery, radiation, and chemotherapy, a 2-year-old boy lay in a coma not eating for over 40 days. His parents are told to make funeral arrangements. However, his father had read about a version of an ancient drug made from cannabis.
Unbeknownst to the hospital staff, the parents start secretly injecting the illegal drug into their dying son’s feeding tube and soon a “miracle” takes place. When the doctors are told that cannabis was the cause of the “miracle,” they have nothing to say.
Every war has unintended victims and it’s the children who are losing America’s longest running war. From cartel recruiting grounds of Mexico – to a child being removed from his birth mother for smoking marijuana. Is it a conspiracy? Or simple profit motives that continue to keep marijuana inside the black market?
After the screening is over there will be a special Q&A session and silent auction.
Tickets are $10 each and the screening will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 27 at the Alamo Drafthouse Slaughter Lane in Austin. Reserve your tickets here.
Texas NORML is the state chapter of The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Texas NORML’s mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to achieve the repeal of marijuana prohibition so that the responsible use of cannabis by adults is no longer subject to penalty. http://texasnorml.org/about/
