Tales from The HempenRoad – Choogle on #80

HempenRoad Choogle Art

While on a mountain ramble, Uncle Weed recounts the HempenRoad film project, a mixed media travel documentary about the commercial industrial hemp industry in Cascadia in 1996. He spiels on the origins, motivations and characters met along the way including Japanese filmmaker Eiji M and philanthro-activist Robert Lunday (RIP). Along with tales of the NorthWest tour, he reads from the Victoria segment of the production journal and the intro of the narration text beginning with “Hemp is a Plant” and finally discusses re-digitification of the film to share with new audiences.

One thought on “Tales from The HempenRoad – Choogle on #80”

  1. Politicians are 10 years behind the times, when it comes to hemp use. People have been fighting for along time against pot prohibition with some movement going on now. Still too slow for those caught up in the jail system. Our freedoms have been trampled on by folks who know nothing about how beautiful cannabis can be for someones life. Keep up the good work.
