Synopsis:

This documentary is about various people who are very dedicated to explore different alternative ways of using cannabis. First of all it is professor Hanuš who is a scientist and who dedicated his professional life to cannabis research. There is also Dušan Dvořák who is an activist (founder of the "Konopí je lék/Cannabis is a cure" fundation). We also follow several patients who use cannabis as a cure for their diseases such as cancer or multiple sclerosis.

This film brings us to the official cannabis green house in Israel where they grow cannabis in very sofisticated ways. Cannabis is then distributed amongst patients with an official approval for free. And it takes us from Israel back to the Czech republic where we are confronted with different perspectives from politicians and policemen not just from the Czech republic and very dedicated addictolog's interpretacions. We witness conferences in the czech parliament, shots from the Milion Marihuana March and other demonstrations and protests against criminalization of Cannabis or Dušan Dvořák's trial over marihuana misuse.

The authors want to conduct an objective survey and show possibilities and limits of cannabis medical use. They also object us to a right of personal freedom and the right of men to obtain the best treatment for their health.
