The story of the Emerald Triangle – Humboldt, Mendocino & Trinity counties in far Northern California – is one of the legendary tales of America’s favorite illegal drug and how it has changed our society. Our film investigates the dramatic rise and fall and rise again of the heartland of cannabis, which grew out of hippie idealism and became an outlaw nation that paved the way for legal cannabis – then fell victim to it. Now that America is changing its mind, it’s time to explore how we got here and where we’re headed. There’s never been anything like a defining film about cannabis and this we hope is it.
