This documentary covers a whole lot of ground. It deals with every historical and contemporary aspect of hemp usage and cultivation (mainly in the U.S.), which turns out to be a lot. From describing the production of a fiber much more durable and economic than wood, the documentary discusses hemps multilateral uses as e.g. food products, as a non-polluting fuel and as a pharmaceutical product with much less grievous side-effects than chemical pharmaceutical products. The film also investigates why America went from a country which produced vast quantities of the non-narcotic industrial hemp, to the complete ban on hemp production in 1938. This story in particular is interesting, and it points out that the large oil-based industries actually had a key role in the aforementioned ban. Food for thought! The conclusion of the documentary could be that hemp may prove to be a valid alternative to both oil and wood in the future.

A face mais casca-grossa do Planet Hemp está sob os refletores neste MTV Ao Vivo, CD gravado em maio para o homônimo projeto da Music Television que já rendeu álbuns do Ira! e Raimundos. Com uma formação compacta - D2 e BNegão (cantores), Rafael (guitarra), Formigão (baixo) e Pedrinho (bateria) - que dispensou DJ, teclados e vozes de apoio, o PH soltou um vigoroso disco de rock, no qual a única concessão ao hip hop são os vocais rappeados. Esse Planet minimal trocou as malandragens sonoras variadas que veio colecionando em seus álbuns de estúdio (em especial no último, o excelente A Invasão do Sagaz Homem Fumaça) pela energia bruta. Mais ou menos como a Justiça e seus argumentos para censurar os shows do grupo: simplista, mas muito eficaz.
In this hilarious parody of the indie hit Memento, roommates Kyle and Dan watch channel 53, eat pizza and chips, and smoke a ridiculous amount of marijuana. One day, however, they discover that their treasured Kind Bud is missing. Someone has stolen it and left a clue as to the whereabouts of their stash: a photo of some strangely familiar mountains. Whomever it was, Kyle and Dan vow to find them and make them pay. So they begin a journey filled with assumption, deception and consumption. Locating the missing weed, however, is complicated by the fact that Kyle and Dan have completely burned out their short-term memories. What is said or done right now is of little consequence, because in a few minutes they won't remember a damn thing.
