With colloquial finesse and his trademark easy ability to communicate with the New Zealand public, I reckon Paddy does a pretty bang up job of unpicking our preconceptions towards the most ubiquitous illicit substance in this country. It’s also just generally a stunning visual doco.

Patrick Gower: On Weed

New Zealand is already on the road to legal medicinal cannabis and in 2020 we will vote in a national referendum on whether it becomes legal to get high. In this two-part event documentary for THREE, journalist Patrick Gower finds out all the facts about marijuana.

The two-part special Patrick Gower: On Weed, from Justin Hawkes, director of Netflix’s Dark Tourist, was one of the biggest shows of 2019, even out-rating the final episode of The Block.

You can watch it on THREENow.
