The Godfathers of Ganja DVD ~ When a whole town of weed smoking Christians who consider the holy herb as a sacrament, discover smuggling pot is a great source of income, then you can only be in Florida, USA, where in the 1970s and 80s the most bizarre marijuana smuggling culture flourished.
While the cocaine smugglers in Miami brutality fought each other, as seen in the film "Cocaine Cowboys" the same filmmaker Billy Corben portrays in the 'The Godfathers of Ganja' film, three of the most colourful Ganja smuggling rings of the 1970s - 80s. These chilled out smugglers brought tons of marijuana into the US from Jamaica, over many years.
The stoner Christians of the 'Ethiopian Zion Coptic Church' from the small town of 'Everglades City', consider the marijuana plant as God-given sacrament and whose residents, turned their attention to bringing the plant in to their country. That was until 80% of male residents were arrested in a major raid!.
They all had a bizarre, sometimes funny, sometimes tragic, share in the smugglers' paradise of South Florida. Like the 'Black Tuna Gang' who enriched their import business with innovative and covert techniques.
