cannabis documentary When Wally Johnson set out to make a film about cannabis prohibition in Sweden, he didn’t expect to be embarking on a journey of self-discovery that would take him to the other side of the world. Sensi Seeds is proud to be associated with Wally and the team from Guerrilla Tactics who are behind the forthcoming documentary ‘Mary & I’.
Despite being a progressive nation in many ways, Sweden has extremely oppressive drug laws. A zero tolerance approach for drugs, including the policy that being under the influence of drugs is in itself an illegal act, is coupled with the third highest rate of deaths from drug overdose in the world. This terrible statistic is part of the impetus behind ‘Mary & I’.
Sweden is also the home of Guerrilla Tactics Entertainment. This independent production company was founded in 2014 and Sensi Seeds is proud to partner with them to help bring ‘Mary & I’ to the public. With a background in acting, scriptwriting and stand-up comedy, Wally Johnson is the main driving force behind the company.
Mary & I & Sensi Seeds
His voyage of discovery into the potential of medicinal cannabis began soon after he turned 30. Rather than keeping a new diagnosis of bipolar disorder secret, he chose to be extremely open about it. Wally began broadcasting ‘Ready 2 Die’, which he describes as “a brutally honest podcast about mental illness, artistic fulfilment and hopeless pursuit of love, happiness and acceptance”. Cannabis has been instrumental both in helping him manage his disorder and in him involuntarily becoming the face of the Swedish cannabis movement.
“Mary & I” follows his journey from Sweden to Amsterdam, Tenerife, the US and beyond, to discover how other cultures are trying to get the most out of cannabis. Four years in the shooting, this documentary is now in its final stages and Sensi Seeds is joining with Guerrilla Tactics once again to make sure it wraps up smoothly.
