It’s 2010 and Proposition 19 could fully legalize marijuana in California. There are intelligent arguments on both sides of the issue. There are serious debates.

But right now it’s time for a dubstep break. And another dubstep break. And some rapping. And then more dubstep. And then hippy educational songs about weed. And then more dubstep.

This is a documentary that wants to be a musical that bills itself as a comedy that is actually the script treatment for the next Jurassic Park movie.

If it sounds like this film is all over the place, a lot of the blame (and, to be honest, credit) can be laid at the feet of Ix, a younger-than-you-would-guess stoner who makes bongs from produce and humps the display cases at her local marijuana dispensary. When she’s not advancing the culinary arts by putting marijuana in literally everything she makes, she’s popping bed bugs, slapping the D, and … writing for NASA? Wait, what?

Thrill as two pot virgins who nevertheless support the legalization of marijuana muddle their way through the music and musings of a movement. Along the way, we’ll also explore parental acceptance and disapproval, discuss bad names for your daughter, and listen to So. Much. Dubstep.

Welcome to California 90420. You can’t buy love, but you CAN buy a lot of weed.

Featuring special guest co-host Jaime Hunt, who somehow has a gift for finding these cinematic train wrecks.

We’re suffering through and reporting back on California 90420, available to stream for free on Amazon Prime.
