Filmmakers Kip Anderson and Chris O’Connell shine a spotlight on the little-known story of the legalization of marijuana in the U.S. and why it’s one of the most important LGBTQ+ rights struggles of the 20th century.

I spent some time with Anderson and O’Connell to talk about their interest in creating the documentary, the man at the center of the marijuana legalization debate Dennis Peron, and their plans in distributing the docu series.

“Cannabis Buyers Club” is currently being showcased at the Tribeca Film Festival.
