The documentary has finally aired!
You can watch “Hooked: Illegal Drugs: Marijuana” here. It’s about 43 minutes long and, since my amazing mother-in-law actually counted, I’m in it 15 times. I even have the last word. It’s me, weirdly enough, that closes out the program. Check it out!
The coolest part was being part of a project that included people I really respect. Larry “Ratso” Sloman is an awesome guy, and his book Reefer Madness is a classic. I was also honored to be interviewed alongside investigative journalists Alyson Martin and Nushin Rashidian. Their book, A New Leaf, looks like a fascinating read – it’s next on my list.
A huge thank you to everyone who has supported my work so far. The book proposal is coming along, and I’ll keep this blog updated to let you know what transpires. Thanks as well to Hugo Rupert at A&E, who first invited me to participate in this project, and Brittany Shaw, who facilitated the whole thing. HISTORY CHANNEL 4EVR.
