This classic stoner film is leaving Netflix.

This week Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced cannabis will be legal across the country as of October 17th, 2018. I think I’m still in shock … and it is a great moment in history but …

I won’t celebrate fully until everyone in jail for soon-to-be obsolete cannabis-related charges are set free, and all medical cannabis patients have affordable (covered by insurance) access.

Some insurance companies are covering cannabis now, in certain circumstances, under certain plans … but it isn’t enough. Too many people are still in a position where they have to take opioids for pain management because the opioids are covered by their insurance and medical cannabis isn’t. Which sucks.

Nonetheless, progress is progress and it feels like a good time to watch Dazed and Confused. Especially since this classic cannabis culture film is leaving Netflix Canada on July 1st!

The Best New Documentaries on Netflix Canada

Here’s a list of what I think are the best new docs currently available on Netflix Canada!

Cuba and The Camera Man

This doc has a lot of heart and was made over five decades, which is definitely part of its magic!

Abstract: The Art of Design

I will probably watch the first episode of this series for the rest of my life! I totally love it.

Joan Didion: The Center Will Not Hold

If writing is important to you, I think you’ll dig this, at times heartbreaking film.

Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

A lot of Jim’s words in this film really made me think about life, meaning and happiness.

Which is what I’m looking for in a documentary!

Gaga: Five Foot Two

I had no idea Gaga lived with such intense chronic pain until this film.

Definitely an interesting glimpse into her life and struggles.


The opioid epidemic is talked about all the time now, for good reason.

I think this film brings something fresh to the conversation as it illuminates how much of a difference three women can make in a community.


This doc is a couple of years old but I still consider it new and it warms my heart! Iris is the perfect example of how vanity is bullshit but fashion can be a real passion.

Any documentary you think should be on this list, that isn’t?

Happy Netflixing!
