Medical marijuana movie release of “California 90210” is coming
Early this morning, U.S. Federal agents raided Oaksterdam University, the nation’s first college which prepares students for careers in the medical marijuana industry. Although medical marijuana is legal in California, it is still prohibited by federal law.
An upcoming documentary CALIFORNIA, 90420 offers an in-depth look inside Oaksterdam through the eyes of its faculty and students. The film prominently features three figures at the core of Oaksterdam University: Richard Lee, OU’s Founder and President, Jeff Jones, OU Horticulture Professor, and Dale Sky Jones, Chancellor of OU and recent head of the Prop 19 campaign to legalize recreational marijuana in California.
Speaking on today’s raid, Director Dean Shull commented, “Oaksterdam University is at the very heart of our documentary, CALIFORNIA, 90420. It’s hard to believe the Federal government doesn’t have better things to do than raiding a learning institution that creates legal jobs in California.”
CALIFORNIA, 90420 hits theaters in select cities on April 20, 2012, a date commonly recognized as a cannabis holiday.For more information on the film, please visit: http://www.90420.com/. Screeners are available on request and we are happy to arrange interview with subjects from the film.
