Of shooting the Cannabis sativa/indica hybrid strain called LA Confidential, he wrote:
"We shot the cannabis plant at Oaksterdam University, a horticultural and educational marijuana growing facility in California, which was a totally enlightening experience.
I was amazed by the huge risks the staff was willing to take because of their commitment to the large population in need of medicinal marijuana. It's a hot topic right now, and I thought, there are so many other plants with psychotropic effects that no one discusses, like the passion flower or the Datura.
I think the flower of the cannabis plant is just incredibly beautiful, and visually, there's just nothing else like it in the project. I just wanted to remove it from the controversy and place it in the same sphere of the other flowers, as part of an overarching, objective botanical survey. I was fortunate to have had the chance to visit, since the facility was raided and shut down just a couple of weeks after our shoot."
