LEGALIZE IT: A Story About the Road to Making Change
The Prop 19 campaign is an inspiring journey demonstrating that even those without wealth and political connection can bend the arc toward greater social justice and use passion to transform a fringe California social issue into a mainstream political topic.
LEGALIZE IT follows Prop 19 campaign leaders over eight months as they struggle to get California voters to approve legislation regulating cannabis like alcohol — sold and taxed at licensed stores to adults over 21.
