Planting seeds of tolerance

PSU undergraduates produce positive films about hemp and marijuana use

Filmmakers Rod Pitman and Stephen Chaffin, two Portland State undergraduates, have sought to capture America’s pro-Marijuana movement in the documentaries Hempsters: Plant the Seed and NORML Life.

The films received worldwide distribution by Cinema Libre within six weeks of each other and feature stars like Woody Harrelson, Willie Nelson, Ralph Nader and members of The Doors.
