High as Mike – the ride to try..

Join Mike on a journey of discovery around Australia showcasing the trials and tribulations of patients using and seeking to use Medicinal Cannabis.

Mike has a brain tumour. As such, Mike’s journey is very much a typical patient journey, looking for answers to life & death questions.

Travelling from Tamworth in NSW, Mike’s journey takes him to all corners of Australia in search of answers.

The documentary reveals patient testimonies with a broad range of medical conditions. Expert opinions and results from all sides of the Medicinal Cannabis debate form a balanced perspective of the current situation patients are facing.

Mikes Journey will have you laughing, crying and…
