Citizenfour (2014)

Good documentary on Snowden, although the heart of it was the first two thirds and the last third is effectively a long wrapup. Based on the media/politicians at the time and...

You Don't Know How It Feels by Tom Petty

I'm assuming it popped into my head for the "Let's roll another joint", since IL made marijuana legal a couple weeks ago.
