#SMOKE

(Executive producer Nasir “Nas” Jones narrates documentary special “SMOKE”)

 “SMOKE: Marijuana + Black America” is a two-hour BET documentary special that examines America’s cannabis industry and the fight for weed equality as the country marches toward legalization. “SMOKE” is told through the lens of innovators in the space, activists fighting for equality, and those citizens who have been sidelined by criminalization of the plant. As the nation grapples with attitudes surrounding cannabis use, commerce and prohibition, “SMOKE” shines a light on persons of color who are leading the way forward and opens a dialogue about social justice through cannabis reconciliation. Executive produced and narrated by multi-platinum rapper Nasir “Nas” Jones and featuring sit-down interviews with Vice President Elect Kamala D. Harris, Senator Cory Booker, Rapper B-Real, former NBA player Al Harrington, Award-winning artist Ty Dolla $ign and others — “SMOKE”  includes testimony from a range of notable individuals who have helped shape attitudes about marijuana use through legislation, music and more.
