about the film


Every year, Amsterdam hosts the world’s biggest pot party, and you’re invited. WEED takes place at the 8th annual Cannabis Cup & Hemp Expo in 1996, a haven for tokers of every stripe — Patagonia-clad slackers, chic urban business women, blunt toking homeboys, and of course a bunch of refried hippies.  A unique, bleary-eyed look at marijuana culture in the ’90s.

1996, Color, 64 minutes
