World's Largest Medical Marijuana Dispensary
December 1, 2011
Steve DeAngelo and his family run Harborside Health Center: the world's largest and most successful medical marijuana dispensary. But when Oakland voters approve a 5% tax hike on all dispensaries, they effectively slap the DeAngelo brothers with a 1.2 million dollar tax bill - due in one week. Steve dispatches his CFO Luigi to City Hall to try and fight the battle. If they lose their appeal, it could mean the end of their business. Harborside "budtender" Terryn begins growing weed to make ends meet. But when he learns the true demands of being a "patient-farmer", he questions the direction of his life.
