PREMIERE DESIGNATION
NEW ENGLAND PREMIERE

SYNOPSIS
Bernie Ellis, all around good guy, was bush hogging a pasture on his farm when he noticed a helicopter circling above. The police raided him that day and Bernie was arrested for growing a small number of cannabis plants – marijuana he gave to terminal AIDS and cancer patients and to relieve his own fibromyalgia. For more than a decade, Bernie wrestled with Tennessee and Federal authorities over his legal status. This is his fascinating story.
