(Mitch Dick­man, U. S.). 79 min­utes. Rat­ing: NNN Mitch Dick­man started shoot­ing the day mar­i­juana be­came legal in Colorado. Not sur­pris­ingly, the first flick to look at the ram­i­fi­ca­tions of le­gal­iz­ing pot in Amer­ica tends to take on too much too su­per­fi­cially.

What starts as a por­trait of Ri­cardo Baca, edi­tor of the Den­ver Post’s The Cannabist, drifts into a dis­cus­sion of whether child pro­tec­tion ser­vices might take away pot re­view­ers’ kids, and dif­fi­cul­ties in mon­i­tor­ing weed con­sis­tency to Uruguay (!?) and be­yond.

Fun names for pot brands, though: Shat­ter, Death Panda. What a rush! Apr 24, 7 pm, Hart House; Apr 26, 1: 45 pm, ROM; May 2, 6: 30 pm, Bloor Hot Docs
