Weed documentary 2016 – This marijuana documentary shows an inside look a high school weed culture. Marijuana use at this school in Portland Oregon is very high, pun intended. Smoking pot has become almost a norm at this high school, while Mooks, Dabs, and other drugs are becoming a real problem. The documentary shows how smoking weed can lead to problems for many young people and also tries to show the disconnect between students and teachers on the subject of drugs. The documentary is not trying to make a statement about marijuana or drugs in general; this is not anti-drug propaganda. The documentary is however intended to bring to light a growing problem and open a more in-depth discussion.

When I first started making this documentary film, I was smoking a lot of weed. I had always believed that marijuana was completely different from other drugs and would never be a huge problem for society. However, the more I investigated this topic, the more I began to realize that weed wasn’t all good. I was surprised upon returning to my old high school to find that xanax and other pills were becoming pretty popular. What’s more, no parents or teachers or anyone at the school had any idea that there was an issue. It was just a bunch of kids experimenting with something that many saw as not a “hard drug”.

I don’t blame marijuana for causing a small xanax epidemic at this school, that would be absurd. But what I can tell you is that only one year ago, virtually no one did xanax and marijuana was the drug of choice. In 2015 a very high percentage of my class smoked weed, and smoked weed regularly. It seems like pot is still the drug of choice at this high school but it seems like things have just gotten so much worse in the last year. Also the whole “mooking” thing is pretty out of hand as well.

I know it’s just weed and tobacco, but I guess when you hit it out of a huge bong several times a day it has some gnarly consequences. I know that in the last year Oregon has legalized marijuana and in the same year the drug problem has gotten worse at this school, but I really don’t know if you can connect the two. Kids were smoking just as much weed before legalization. Maybe it has something to do with the “it’s not cool anymore” affect as stated by lil droosie.

I have always supported marijuana legalization. I think people should have the freedom to use weed for recreation. However, after making this documentary I feel less sure about legalization than ever. I know that legalizing could help with our prison overcrowding, cut power away from drug cartels, and is just generally the right thing to do.

But it really does seem like it may lead to an inevitable increase in underage use. I don’t know and neither does anyone else. Since making this documentary I have started smoking a lot less weed myself and have noticed positive affects.

Maybe I’m just getting old and more conservative , and less fun haha. Just know that before you comment that is documentary is anti-drugs or anti-weed, it has made by a liberal 19 year old weed-user who didn’t think weed was bad before he started investigating.

  • This is far worse than the guns that liberals want to remove from law abiding Americans. The rate of teen drug overdose deaths in the United States climbed 19% from 2014 to 2015, from 3.1 deaths per 100,000 teens to 3.7 per 100,000,

  • In Australia almost everyone I know smokes with tobacco and I've never heard of anyone having a seizure from it

    Reply
  • Abusing drugs is a mental health problem, it should be treated as that and the kids environment needs to be improved in order to fix the root problem that leads to addictive behaviour.

    Reply
  • I visited Portland once and heard about "mooking", can't believe it's actually a thing. Seizures? seems exaggerated… Stupid as shit regardless. Most cats interviewed don't know wtf they're talking about period.

  • BULLSHIT u don’t get angry or anything like hat when u stop smoking and it’s not “Intense as fuck” and get “a head rush” it’s more like it makes you mellow the fuck out stop making it seem like a bad thing. Oh no u dropped out of school not because of pot..cause your fucking retarded that’s why. If you can’t just be like “when I’m dry I’m dry that’s just it” instead of needing it like every second like a crackhead you shouldn’t need it 24/7 to function like a normal human if you can’t function like a normal human unless ur stoned then you have mental issues☺️

  • Damn I didn't know weed was crack 😂

    Reply
  • This "mook" thing is just ridiculous. In Europe nearly everyone mixes weed and tobacco, nobody get fucking seizures here. It's all a load of bullshit, they must be lightweights or they're smoking shit they don't know what is.
