Okay, backstory first,
I am here in my room smoking copious quantities of some fine NorthWestern super sativa, and I'm playing music.
Today is an extremely sunny day for this state during this Winter season.
It's a nice change of pace with the weather, and I came across quite possibly the greatest idea for a movie.

A movie about a world where WEED is legalized.

Think about how incredibly moving and amazing that would be.

A world where marijuana is being consumed naturally and shows how the WORLD would benefit from this plant.
It would be artistic, realistic, moving, and funny, and everything.
It would show most of the good, most of the bad, and most of the in between.

Picture this:

The start of the movie it starts of showing a guy (lets just say me, because I'm not creative enough to think of anyone else so I'll be logical and use myself for the example)
Waking up, with the sun beaming through the shades, the room messy from last night with cups everywhere and a notebook on the desk in front of the bed.
I go up to open the shades and the sun's rays hit my skin and you can tell I look extremely pleased with the weather, and I decide to get ready for my day, smoking a bowl (this is all seen on camera, showing the cannabis and everything, artistically showing it getting hit and cashed and blowing the smoke, everything)
This starts off my day and I just watch the clouds and the trees and everything that's visible outside my second floor window.
Everything just looks bright and vibrant.
The cool thing would be this; not everybody views the same high, so how cool would it be if the camera adjusted its focus so it would look like the camera is high too. So in a sense "we're getting high together".
To show people how the perspective is and everything.
Then it would just randomly change perspective like that to perspectives of other people's lives and what they're doing, and then have everybody kind of "run in to each other" like what they did with Pulp Fiction.
Smoking billions and billions and billions of cannabis, seeing how hemp will benefit life, all the uses, seeing it as a sort of movie, documentary sort of thing.
A realistic one.
I would appreciate input on this, what do you other conscious minds think?

Actually a great idea. But it needs a conflict lol. Your too high to realize that a movie that just shows peoplegetting high isn't enough :)

Tue, 01/10/2012 - 3:41pm

There's no conflict that can't be dealt with with talking, so of course there will be conflicts in the movie, but the way they'll be dealt will be a way Humans have always dealt problems.
It would show normal days, good days, weird days, bad days, and excellent days, and it would show a life-changing day.
Any ideas to add on to the movie?

Elnicko Says:

Yea definitely need conflict. You would need to get into some character development type shit, like, DEEP into the rabbit hole and then just have weed as a slight undertone, but make sure the message gets across, essentially subliminal messaging but for a good cause and not to start wars with brown dessert people.

Tue, 02/28/2012 - 3:42pm

there needs to be a part where it's a montage of everyone smoking, and progressively getting higher. check out the link below, its pretty much what i imagine but replace the one man walking with dozens of people (whomever is part of the storyline) smoking and they're at various points of a blunt, joint, bong, bowl ect. maybe thats how the movie starts, basically letting you know theres gonna be a LOT of weed in this epic movie

HighGuy11 Says:

chill guys lol there are many many steps to making a movie, and the first step is the general idea. this guy had a general idea to make a movie where weed is legal, and that's a good start. he hasn't written the whole movie yet lol. but yes, every movie needs some kind of conflict

Tue, 02/28/2012 - 3:31pm

I have a perfect idea! So everyone is happy and smoking weed, and then BAM the government makes it illegal. Then without weed the world changes. It is not peaceful anymore like it used to be. People start killing each other!!! People start raping each other!! Slavery even is going on!! It is the world we know today.

BlazinX Says:

It could have no conflict. You could do it like an adaptation of the play Our Town. That shit has no conflict but is one of the most performed plays in the United States...

Tue, 02/28/2012 - 6:56pm
Elnicko Says:

CakeBake thats a great idea, essentially a pre-drug war world, and how its fucking people over.

I think we can hold back on the slavery because I mean...that's a bit much imo but a great idea nontheless lmao

Should DEFINITLY have a cop that smokes weed but stops because of the law, and how he struggles to arrest people he knows are innocent because he's just doing his job. Like, helmet cam.

Door gets kicked down and a bunch of cops charge in. Looking around frantically for a barking dog trying not to get bit his head turns to see a officer shoot the dog (emotional impact right there baby) and the children are crying, the mother is scared, and the father is pissed, confused, and being arrested.
The cop continues to fight the drug war while still arresting drug users, until whatever you want his peak to be, he quits the force or whatever, but continue with the family, and their struggles.
Need a weed patient to get the medicinal message out their. Yea man...this has some potential.

I suggest looking up "boondocks nigga moments" on youtube and showing how weed could prevent and/or improve those situations. I think it would make for some funny scenes.

Once I come up with a finished script product, I suppose I can put it up on kickstart to fundraise for a camera capable of recording in high def and then creating a movie for all to see!
Doesn't need to be extra fancy, just gotta be up to date on technology!
GoPro 1st person HD bong rips anyone? That'll be a part of the movie for sure!

rysmith Says:

To the original commenter - The conflict is that its not uncriminalized.
I would call you a dumbass but I think you need to smoke on it to clear your mind... hydro, chronic, or perrp should help you. Reggie, swag, or brick weed's only a body high.
You need something Full Body & Mind to see the picture that this man imagined.
!!!Best Movie Ever!!!

I would set the price at $4.20!
I know you're gonna wanna use $5 to put up for a bag, and then the remainder ($2.80) to buy some snacks or something.
Make use of those $12 my friend!

I'm thinking the conflict is like someone mentioned already, personal stuff.
Like you said it would show all the different perspectives so you would see people who smoke weed and it causes some problems in their lifestyle, like the stereo typical burn out who is lazy and gets into worse drugs.
but the beautiful part would be that it shows how it's not the weed that's the problem but his attitude and poor decisions leading up to smoking weed. That he was lazy and depressed and had an addictive personality before the drugs and you can't blame the herb.

but also show people who use it for inspiration like artists and musicians and chefs and writers.
Or people who use it to relax and have fun with friends after work.
or parents like mine who smoke a bowl after work laugh and play or chill with their kids instead of parents who would come home and get drunk and beat on their family.

It could be just a movie about people in the same city who cross paths every day and there's some sort of deep captivating story line between the way they get to know or already know each other.
So the weed isn't the focus point of the movie, it's just a documentary style comedy-drama about people who smoke weed on the daily that would illustrate to the non-smoking population that pot smokers are all around us, most of them fully functional healthy responsible members of society, and that weed doesn't ruin your life, it just enhances it. If you're a lazy fuck who wants to ruin their lives, it's not weed's fault, it's yours.

It would have to be really artists with lots of great camera angles and subtle musical scores to bring on a realistic but attention grabbing perspective that makes the audience really feel the high of each character. And be able to have a sober point of view too, like when the characters aren't smoking or it shows someone who doesn't smoke, they need to really catch all the different FEELINGS.

Create a new highdea as a reply to this one and message me the highdea and I'll add the adaptation to the existing highdea and then create a final script once everything is complete and ready!
Then maybe, just maybe, I'll find a ton of people and we can SHOOT THIS WICKEDSHIT!

Tue, 02/28/2012 - 3:21am

They could have legit marijuana cigarettes :)

Tue, 02/28/2012 - 10:48am

dude the conflict should be getting marijuana decriminalized so we can all grow our own shit... as for the main characters id span the races genders ages and employment... and incorporate them all together like you said... id have a politicean thats campaigning for legalization but he would have to be somewhat of an underdog that has good experience but a flaw, a female teenager struggling with school and family issues, a black dude that is a rapper (go high profile, get snoop, wiz, or cudi... preferably cudi), have several antagonists like a black femal politcean, or some old white businessman, or the girls parents or allof them... and than interconnect their stories but in each story show the benefits that weed is giving each user and have it all climax at once connecting each person leading thjem to this revelation even defeating and converting the antagonists... than end with everyone at a kid cudi concert and while marijuana plays just mad hot bitches with those t-shirt bazookas come out on stage and shoot bud to the whole crowd... and as marijuana fades everyone sparks and it gets soo cloudy and the credits roll... perfect

Spankzz Says:

Maybe a movie where people's stories clash. Like yeah you can wakeup in the morning and smoke your bowl but maybe you do something after and you windup in some sort of situation with like 5 other people and it shows the events leading up to that, like everyone has their own side of the story. Maybe someone is a dispensary owner and has to deal with some anti marijuana people outside his shop and maybe someone else just gets really baked and forgets all his responsibilities throughout the day, etc.

CamBam. Says:

I want a role in this. I think this movie would be the shit and could quite possibly sway a large group of people into being marijuana believers! Yes, great idea. Maybe it could be like all reversed where weed has always been legal and in the movie there is a group of people trying to make weed illegal, and then people would see how fucking stupid that is.

I have always had a life dream to be an extra in a movie doing something random and wierd. Like at a really intense part of the movie im in the background walking smoking a j and see a cute dog tied to a sign outside of a store, then i untie the dog and jog off with it just before the owner walkes out. It would give some comic relief and fufill and life dream of mine :) So if you ever make this I would like to be an extra:) Best of luck with this wonderful movie highdea.

This sounds like it would really be a moving movie. Like this will go down in history. Oh, before I forget, I had an idea that may really benefit your film. So I saw a couple comments saying that you can't just make a movie recording people getting high, you could do something similar to the silent film technique. With this style you could have a moment completely focused on the protagonist when he's completely blown and have music to match the film completely. It'd be a symphony of sight and sound. Some examples of silent films are Fantasia, Amadeus, and Metropolis. All of which I recommend to watch while under the inluence. ;) Great Movie Idea!

Reminds me of the movie
Enter The Void
2001: A Space Odyssey!

I'd rather not, not sure how much those people actually care for The People, and I don't have a friendship-relationship with those folks, albeit neither are the highdea users, but I consider you folks a secondary family, almost.

This is like the best story ive ever heard....great highdea !

Call it "The Blunt Truth" and have it about high schoolers first discovering the herb.

im kinda amazed this hasn't been done before, great idea man :)

This is a really good idea. I agree too that this movie should have many people's stories clash but I feel like they should have a common goal that actually connects them not just the fact that they all smoke. Something that will bring them all together.

like if going off of the movie idea that weed is legal in the beginning and becomes illegal and it's like another war, their goal could be to fight for their rights to have it back. - showing that it really does help our society not just put a damper on it.

Wed, 02/29/2012 - 2:47pm

I like this idea, and I agree that there needs something to being them all together.

Their cause will be to legalize weed. I can see it now.
There will be a scene where America is founded by the Founding Fathers, and they're all smoking doobies and creating the "Declaration Of Independence", there will be a scene where one of the guys are saying
"Hey shouldn't we write something along the lines of "Consumption of hemp and it's like is a necessity for the economy and survival"
Then we could have the person actually writing the document tell that guy "Hey, come on, you don't think the people of the future are THAT stupid do you?!"

Yay? Nay?

I like it. But there will be some historians out there who will say, "It didn't happen like that exactly." It opens up a chance for critics, and I'm sure critics will look for every way to mock the film when it comes out.
