Its title taken from the slang term for bales of marijuana that were jettisoned from South Florida boats and airplanes throughout the 1970s and '80s, this documentary from Cocaine Cowboys director Billy Corben details three remarkable stories about the marijuana trade, and the folks who risked everything to keep America green. With 5,000 miles of coastland neighboring both the Caribbean and Latin America, Florida was the perfect place to smuggle pot into the U.S. But in order to stay out of prison, these laid-back smugglers would need to maintain a low profile. As the stories of the Black Tuna Gang, the Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church, and the desperate fishermen of Everglades City unfold, viewers are shown a side of the marijuana trade that most folks only read about in newspapers. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
