Where to see ‘Rolling Papers’: Documentary in theaters and on demand

If you’re wondering how to see “Rolling Papers,” the new documentary about legal cannabis and the journalists covering its historic roll-out in Colorado, then you’re in luck.

The film, which follows Cannabist critics and columnists and Denver Post journalists as they cover the modern world’s first legal marijuana sales, hits theaters and video-on-demand services on Feb. 19. And the film’s distributor, Alchemy, just released a list of the cities and theaters that will be playing the film — as well as the VOD services that will offer the movie for download on the same day it opens theatrically.

The Cannabist will keep this list updated as new theaters and services are added.
