THE NAKED QUEEN

The Naked Queen is a cultural critique of the mythic foundations of 
the war on drugs which has in essence become a war on cannabis. 
Starting with the ancient history of cannabis and leading to the 
extremism of U.S. federal policy with regard to this enigmatic plant, 
this feature documentary strips away the propagandist illusions about 
cannabis with its "roots in hell", unveiling the hypocrisy of this 
entrenched policy.
