Matthew Frank presents Pot Farm, his account of the lives and times of folks working on a "mostly medical" marijuana farm in California.

Pot Farm details the strange, sublime, and sometimes dangerous goings-on at Weckman Farm, a place with hidden politics and social hierarchies, populated by recovering drug addicts, alternative healers, pseudo-hippie kids, and medical marijuana users looking to give back.
