Weekend Watching: American Outlaw – The True Story of a Marijuana Millionaire

Anthony Haden Guest did a nice interview with Richard Stratton for Standard Culture. That got me digging, and as a result you’ve got something fun to watch.

This video, through re-enactments, stock footage, score and interview, tells the unbelievable story.”
