Netflix's latest documentary centers on the the racist history of marijuana policing, and pot's influence on American art and culture.

Featuring a host of interviews from musical icons Snoop Dogg, B-Real and Killer Mike as well as experts on America's troubled history with cannabis, 'Grass is Greener' promises to show both the racism and creativity that has surrounded cannabis culture since its early days.

Few other entrepreneurs in the cannabis space have their hands in quite as many ventures as Lorne Gertner. Currently dubbed the "godfather of the Canadian cannabis industry," Gertner told Civilized, "If we could live through normalization, we could change the world." Hailing from the fashion industry, this Toronto native says he's on a mission to "make the world a better place through cannabis and design excellence." The only catch is, well, normalizing cannabis — and that's where Gertner's keen eye for style comes in. "In the old days, you were going to be different or you were going to be normal," said Thom Antonio, Gertner's friend, creative director, and collaborator of 35 years.
