Zorba the Buddha is:

“A new kind of human capable both of enjoying the earthly pleasures of a Zorba the Greek and the silent serenity of a Gautama Buddha.”

Zorba the Buddha is a 2014 Milwaukee documentary film promoting the immediate legalization of Cannabis. It is written and directed by Mary Freeman.

“True compassion is more than flinging a coin to a beggar; it comes to see that an edifice which produces beggars needs reconstructing.”

In the early 19th century, Milwaukeeans created the first global economy with the facilitation of beer manufacturing. This industry not only provided great wealth for Milwaukee, it developed a productive middle class, and a world-renowned reputation.

Since 1970, over 100,000 jobs have disappeared from Milwaukee’s central city, leaving unprecedented concerns in housing, education and job creation.

One in every eight of Wisconsin’s black men of working age are behind bars, and there are more men incarcerated or on probation/parole than were enslaved in 1850.

These staggering statistics and lack of opportunity in Milwaukee led to the development of Cream City Enterprises, an organization of artists and activists acting on behalf of the people of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to lobby for the legalization of the Cannabis plant. By listening to the people, Wisconsin lawmakers can initiate legislation to legalize Cannabis and at the same time provide an unparalleled opportunity to urban farmers for the first rights to its growth and distribution.

Once legal, Cream City Enterprises will transform old, unused buildings into coffee shops, bakeries, and cafes, licensed to sell and consume Cream City Cannabis on premise, with the proceeds going to revive Milwaukee’s inner city.

This unique idea of legalizing Cannabis immediately based on racial discrimination, and bringing the multi-million dollar industry to Milwaukee’s central city, will be a positive step toward ending poverty in Milwaukee.

Our model will be used for the entire country as the prohibition of Nature’s most powerful healing herb slowly but surely comes to an end.
