  1. A spirited, smart-alecky look at the ongoing conflict between a government that wants to eliminate pot and a public that wants to smoke it.
  2. Reviewed by: John Hartl

    Grass is often closer to the sobering tone of the PBS show than it is to the silly "Weed," with its stoned, barely literate potheads discussing the quality of their dope.
  3. A revealing, often amusing, sometimes disturbing look at the history and politics of marijuana use in American society.
  4. It's as entertaining and informative as anything Mann's ever done, and as good an example of grass humor as you're likely to find anywhere.
  5. 67
    So heavy-handed and blatant in its posturings and so incomplete at 73 minutes that you simply feel like you've been harangued more than educated.
  6. A well-researched and well-illustrated, if often facetious, record of the U.S. government's longtime war on cannabis. And while it's a little too single-minded, it's both fun to watch and quite informative.
  7. It has as much of an ax to grind as the humorless and misguided bureaucrats it mocks.
