If you want to know where the best marijuana in the world is grown, just ask Oliver Stone. The Oscar-winning film director, a long-time user and an outspoken proponent of the drug, has no doubt.
“The best weed in the world is here in California,” he tells me firmly when we talk in a Los Angeles hotel. “I’ve been doing it for 40 years as you know, and there’s better stuff here than in Afghanistan, Vietnam, Jamaica, South Sudan – and I’ve been to all those places. The Facebook generation, if that’s what you call them, are very smart kids and they make good stuff.”
