Tumbling Weeds is the story of marijuana activists in the state of Texas, specifically focusing on the Dallas / Fort Worth chapter of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (DFW NORML). The short film follows Shaun McAlister, Executive Director of DFW NORML and activists from around the state such as State Representatives David Simpson (R – Longview) and Joe Moody (D – El Paso) as they work to change marijuana policy both from the grassroots of the Global Marijuana March to the Capitol in Austin for legislative hearings and meetings. Created as a student film by Director Juan Angulo, Tumbling Weeds is a story of hope for the parents, patients and activists fighting for sensible marijuana policy in the Lone Star State.
