“A great film. And it truly IS America.
“I was surprised by all the humor, and I loved that you guys made such hardcore, principled points without beating your audience over the head with abstruse philosophy.”
“I’m impressed with how well you presented such a difficult synthesis of two freedom-loving cultures which often view each other as antithetical. The message of ‘Live and let live’ shines through in this very hip and unique video.”
—Boston T. Party
“Guns and Weed is an intelligent documentary addressing prohibition, regulation, taxes, government schools and property. It wisely advocates that if you want to be free, you must stand up for the liberty of other peaceful humans, even those who would do or possess things with which you disagree.”
–Ian Freeman, Free Talk Live radio
“The timing of this film is PERFECT! America is ready for freedom for guns and weed.”
–Mark Edge, Free Talk Live radio
