Coconuts TV’s documentary mini-series on the growing marijuana legalization movement in Thailand is now available to watch instantly on Netflix, the world’s leading internet television network.
HIGHLAND is set in Thailand, a country with a long and convoluted history of marijuana. The documentary series depicts a lesser-known side of the Southeast Asian nation. Far from the tourists and the tropical beaches, there is a growing community of Thai people fighting a battle to legalize marijuana.
The documentary series chronicles the story of marijuana in Thailand over three episodes: Origins, Medical and Recreational. Origins focuses on HIGHLAND magazine and Thailand’s marijuana history, especially the current legal status and its relationship to US policy and the Vietnam War. Medical explores Thailand’s debate around medical pot, visiting marijuana conferences and talking to passionate advocates who are fighting the Thai justice system and risking their own lives in the process. Recreational explores the contemporary marijuana culture in Thailand and catches up with some influential characters in Bangkok, including the next generation of Thai pot entrepreneurs.
