‘High As Mike’: A Medicinal Cannabis Film Screening

Let’s Get Behind This!

The trailer for the new documentary about medicinal cannabis in Australia has arrived. ‘High As Mike’ follows the story of Mike, who has a brain tumour. It’s the sort of tumour that won’t kill him, but will rob him of his sight.

With the current stagnation of prescription cannabis in Australia, Mike sets off on a road trip of discovery to find out if medicinal cannabis can treat his tumour and help him regain his eyesight. ​Travelling from Tamworth in New South Wales, Mike’s journey takes him all across this great southern land. He visits the Gold Coast, Nimbin, Newcastle, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra, Uluru, Townsville and Sydney, all in search of answers. ​

Mike chats with patients that have already embarked on their own life changing medicinal cannabis journey. He also speaks with politicians, a former Australian Federal Police commissioner, a lawyer, a neurosurgeon, doctors and suppliers of medicinal cannabis – including one that is facing an 18 year prison sentence for her life-saving service. ​The documentary uses testimonies from patients with a broad range of medical conditions. It surveys expert opinions from all sides of the medicinal cannabis debate, and offers a balanced perspective concerning the current situation with prescriptions and medicinal cannabis in Australia.

The publicity this film lends to the plight of medicinal cannabis users in Australia will be a very significant victory against the War on Drugs. So… ladies and gentlemen, let’s do it!
