WEED THE PEOPLE From Ricki Lake

Weed the People (Sound Design by Tom Gambale / MediaRacket) is NOW PLAYING in theaters across the country!

WEED THE PEOPLE opened on Friday night October 26th, in New York City. It was an amazing weekend for the filmmaking team and the response from the audiences was even more positive than we could have imagined. We have definitely started a movement and people are fired up to get on board and to share this film.

WEED THE PEOPLE opens in Los Angeles this evening at a special premiere with all the families featured in the film. There are still some tickets left so you can purchase here! See below for more upcoming screenings this week in LA, Berkeley and Sebastopol.

Below, we've included a few of the press appearances that we did. We have received excellent reviews, including 100% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Ricki Lake is a pop culture icon who has channeled her nurturing spirit and drive for social change into passion projects that are altering the way society views birth, breastfeeding, childhood obesity, birth control and now — medical cannabis.
