Synopsis: Santa Barbara County recently approved some of the world’s largest outdoor cannabis operations in the heart of its acclaimed wine country. As the blooming cannabis industry continues to grow, renowned vintners, farm families, and long-time locals react to the changing landscape of the valley that they call home.
As conflict grows between California’s staple crops, this film explores if weed and wine are able to exist side-by-side and if local vintners, farmers, and residents are able to share the beautiful farmlands of the central coast.
