The producers of a proposed film called “Miss Cannabis” won approval from the Colorado Economic Development Commission on Wednesday for $600,000 in rebates on any spending in the state.
Backers promised the film, despite its name, won’t tread down the path blazed by Cheech & Chong.
Wine & Weed
“I want to state this is not a marijuana movie,” Colorado film commissioner Donald Zuckerman told the commission.
The plot is based on a true story of a wealthy woman who loses her wealth in a Ponzi scheme and moves to what she thinks is a vineyard but it turns out to be a medical marijuana grow operation.
Although set in California, scouts are searching out locations in Colorado’s wine growing areas.
Melanie Griffith, who owns a home in the state, is slated to take the lead role.
