Armed with only these laboratory studies, desperate parents obtain cannabis oil from UNDERGROUND sources to save their children from childhood cancers.

WEED THE PEOPLE follows these families through uncharted waters as they take their children's survival into their own hands. Some of their miraculous outcomes beget the unsettling question at the heart of the film: If weed is truly saving lives, why doesn't the government want people to access it?
