April 8th Grass is Greener (1h 44m)
Grass is Greener follows hip hop legend Fab Five Freddy as he uncovers the history of illegal cannabis in the United States. He interviews many other popular artists, like Snoop Dogg and B-Real from Cypress Hill, as well as attorneys, influencers, and people who were personally affected by drug convictions. The timeline starts in the 1920s jazz era where Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Billie Holiday were all targets under racist policies and moves into the modern era where cannabis is a booming industry with an uncertain future.
