Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Dvds -

The film- mak­ers re­spon­si­ble for the drug doco Co­caine Cow­boys ditch the colour­ful nose­candy sto­ries and take up the plight of Florida mar­i­juana movers in the 1970s in this slow- burn fea­ture. It fo­cuses on three main sub­jects who hauled the herb into the US – a pot- smok­ing church group, the crew of a smug­gling op­er­a­tion and the res­i­dents of a fish­ing com­mu­nity forced into the trade through tough times – and the cops and govern­ment or­gan­i­sa­tions that tried to stop them. While they are in­ter­est­ing sto­ries you wouldn’t have heard much about, un­for­tu­nately there’s not a lot of en­ergy in their telling.
