'Breaking Habits' Is a New Documentary About Cannabis-Growing Nuns

The Sisters of the Valley are not your traditional sisterhood of nuns - they prefer the scent of marijuana to frankincense. Now, a film titled Breaking Habits is set to explore their world.

The film was directed by Rob Ryan and centres around Christine Meeusen. She founded the Sisters of the Valley after leaving her cushy job as a corporate executive and her bigamist husband. Meeusen turned to the medicinal cannabis industry and adopted the person of Sister Kate, cannabis nun.

The Sisters have had a wild ride over the past few years. Between run-ins with local law enforcement, drug cartels and the California state Bureau of Medical Cannabis Regulation, Meeusen has to stay on her toes.

The film has now been picked up by Cranked Up for US distribution and should be available to watch in full soon. Until then, you can check out the doc's trailer above.


Rock icon David Crosby is not one to mince words - even when criticizing himself, which is a recurring theme in the new documentary 'David Crosby: Remember My Name.' And he's just as unapologetically candid when the cameras are off, I learned after chatting with Crosby over the phone to discuss the premiere of the doc, which opens this weekend (July 19) in New York and Los Angeles. So far, the doc has received excellent reviews from critics who find his frankness refreshing in an age when so many public figures are afraid to go off script and drop their filters. "Nobody does that anymore," Crosby told Civilized.
