“Waiting to Inhale” takes the viewer from underground pot clubs to the U.S. Supreme Court, from Israeli science labs to government approved marijuana gardens outside London. It features leading experts and researchers from all over the world on both sides of the controversy over the therapeutic potential of marijuana. In the U.S., ten states have passed laws with medical marijuana provisions. Yet use, cultivation and possession - for any reason - remain illegal under federal law. In the film we see the ensuing battles while exploring deeper issues of medical ideologies. “Waiting to Inhale” is not a propaganda film for either side of this international conflict, instead focusing on passionate individuals enmeshed in a struggle whose stakes are nothing short of life and death.
