People of color are still disproportionately targeted for marijuana offenses – even in places that have legalized adult-use. “I was so surprised that this issue was hardly in the public conversation about cannabis when I first looked into this idea early last year,” said filmmaker Parisa Dunn in an email. The inequity in the industry compelled her to team up with retired NBA player Caron Butler to produce the documentary, The Green Dream.
The issue is “close to his heart,” explains Dunn. Butler started dealing drugs by the time he was 12. At 15-years-old, he was convicted and sent to a youth correctional facility, a story he details in his autobiography. “Yes, drug dealing was wrong, very wrong,” he wrote. “But, on the other hand, the people who were successful and had money in my neighborhood were the people who sold drugs.”
