Birds of a Feather actress and Loose Women panellist Linda Robson, ex EastEnders actress Pam St Clement, actor Christopher Biggins, retired footballer and TV presenter John Fashanu and darts supremo Bobby George explore the use of marijuana for both medical and recreational purposes in US states where it is legal and meet people who have experienced both the benefits and the downsides. And try to answer the question, should we legalise cannabis use in the UK?
Part 1: San Francisco
The celebrities begin their three-week voyage of discovery in San Francisco where the city is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Summer of Love. After a consultation over Skype with a doctor during which they list their health concerns, they are each given a medical certificate, which allows them to legally buy marijuana at a special dispensary.
Part 2: Los Angeles
The magical marijuana mystery tour continues and this time Los Angeles, California and Colorado, home of the Rocky Mountains, play host to five household names as they eat, sleep and breathe cannabis culture…just who will put their marijuana where their mouth is?
Part 3: The Farm
Its all aboard the magical marijuana mystery tour for the final leg of the journey through the weird, wonderful and worrying world of legalised ‘weed. On their tour itinerary is a look inside The Farm, a super-sized state-licensed marijuana operation. Its legalised growing on a mind-blowing scale particularly for the green-fingered Pam and Bobby. The trip includes an extraordinary shopping opportunity at the obligatory Farm Shop where, seemingly, anything is on offer as long as it contains dope.
