Overview

Colorado Premiere
Eighty-year-old Delores Saltzman was “relaxing and having a joint” when she heard a knock on her door. Pot, she explains, helped with her arthritis. Sleeping on a cement floor in jail after being arrested because her medical marijuana card had expired, not so much. Perhaps Delores’s case, cheerfully documented here, helped bring legal recreational weed to Michigan, approved by voters this past November.
