Legally Dope is a short documentary about recreational and medicinal cannabis/marijuana. We wanted to change the minds of people who believe that this drug is bad for you. We wanted to tell this story in particular because this is actually a battle for people who really can not survive without this. We want audiences to understand the daily life of people who need it to relax and people who need it to keep it together, just like medicine being served over the counter.
