The war on drugs has failed, but is legalization of cannabis the answer?

Five years after the people of Colorado voted to legalize recreational cannabis, Pot Luck presents a colorful cast of locals including businessmen, budtenders, barbers, cops and farmers, who all share a stake in the brand new world of legalized pot. Gathering their stories and experiences the film looks beyond the headlines and hysteria and asks: Is this blazed new world a good one? Have the injustices of the war on drugs been addressed? Is drug crime down? What about personal liberty and access to alternative health care? Is legalization synonymous with greater social justice?
