Waldo on Weed (2019) Tribeca 2019
Good look at how important the use of marijuana is for some diseases. As the film clearly shows the herb has much to give to us beyond making us high. And it should be pointed out that the chemical distilled in the oil will not get you high. This is something that people who think that the use means everyone is going to be lighting up needs to understand.
As important as the film is, I think it could stand to be a little tighter. I know the film only runs 85 minutes but some of family sequences could be trimmed. Also some of gushing over weeds medicinal uses could be toned down since it’s a bit over kill at times.
Full disclosure – Please be aware that my reaction to the film, and its use of home video footage, was influenced by seeing at least three films at Tribeca which were made up of home video footage. I absolutely did mental comparisons between all the films. When watching all but the first.
Regardless of my reservations WALDO ON WEED is a must see for anyone pondering the pros and cons of marijuana.
