    The Union: Ever wonder what British Columbia's most profitable idustries are? Logging? Fishing? Tourism? Ever think to include Marijuana? If you haven't, think again. BC's illegal marijuana trade has evolved into a unstoppable business giant, dubbed by those involved as 'The Union'. Commanding upwards of $7 billion annnually, The Unions roots stretch far and wide with 65% to 85% of all 'BC Bud' being exported to the United States. Follow filmaker Adam Scorgie as he dives head first into Canada's most social acceptable illegal activity by interviewing growers, clippers, police officers, criminalogists, economists, psychologist, doctors, politicians, and pop culture icons, to expose the business of getting high.

    The Harvest: Jahweve has spent his entire life on the island. He has seen the big world on T.V. He wants to travel. he wants to become a musician. On his small Caribbean island there is no work, fishing doesn't make any money, farming even less. Visas are impossible to obtain and flights cost a fortune. As a Rasta, the only solution is to grow weed in the mountains, but the army helicopters are coming to the hills more frequently to burn the plantations. One morning as he sleeps, he has a vision; he sees faraway lands, hears strange music and meets people he never knew existed. This is a sign for him to harvest his plants as soon as possible and leave for Martinique on a small boat. He plans to sell his stuff in the French islands where he can then board a plane to meet his destiny. Of course nothing comes that easy.
