Host Jay Thiemeyer interviews filmmaker Dean Shull about his new documentary CALIFORNIA 90420 which looks at Oaksterdam University, the nation's only college preparing students for work in the medical marijuana industry. The film shows at the Clinton Street Theater in Portland starting Friday, April 27th.
90420 focuses on the rapidly open and growing marijuana trade in the State of California. The film explores the burgeoning 'above ground' industry through the eyes of four, 20-something characters whose real lives are caught up in the changing green landscape.
The film follows faculty and students at California's Oaksterdam University, the nation's first college to prepare students for careers in the ever changing marijuana industry and the epicenter of legalization efforts in California. Recently federal agents from the DEA and IRS raided Oaksterdam University as well as the home of Oaksterdam University Founder, Richard Lee. Although medical marijuana is legal in California, it is still prohibited under federal law, leaving Oaksterdam in a precarious legal limbo.
CALIFORNIA 90420 is a New Coast Productions Film directed by Dean Shull (Waiting...) and produced and written by Dean Shull, Steve Roberts and Colin Goldman. The film features Dale Sky Jones and Oaksterdam co-founders Richard Lee and Jeff Jones.
