A lot has happened to the cannabis industry since Still Smokin, Cheech Marin’s final Cheech and Chong film, was released in 1983. On Jan. 9, 2018, Marin will be returning to the well with Dark Harvest, available on all digital platforms.
Dark Harvest, written and directed by James Hutson (his directorial debut), also stars Hutson, A.C. Peterson, Tygh Runyan and Hugh Dillon. The film chronicles the struggles of two growers and a suspended narcotics officer as they deal with a series of murders on the eve of marijuana legalization.
Hutson studied under Ben Kingsley at the British American Drama Academy in Oxford, England. He’s also is a veteran of the cannabis industry. (I’m not 100 percent clear on which end of it…) However, Dark Harvest was featured at the New York Cannabis Festival, winning both best film and best actor awards, as well as showing at the Cannabis Film Festival in Colorado and a special screening at the High Times Cannabis Cup Festival in Las Vegas.
