Overview

This documentary follows director Kevin Booth as he investigates the world of illegal drugs, from street-corner dealers to high level kingpins, from narcotics officers to powerful judges. Appraoching his subject matter with a skeptical eye, Booth questions the effectiveness of the drug war, and the motives of those who continue to fuel it from all ends. Through research and investigation, Booth asserts that there might well be just as much greed, crime, and corruption on either side of the narcotics battle, as the drug war is steeped in issues of race and class.

One of the best documentaries I have ever seen and since the filmmaker was a close friend to the late, great comedian Bill Hicks, you can see the inspiration and slight mention in the film. FDA and &amp quot legal&amp quot more harmful substances like tobacco and alcohol have damaged our society long enough. Giving a moron like Sheriff Joe Arpaio mic time, probably not a good idea, but if that was the only person they could get from the evil right-wing then they succeeded. A good interview would have been with Gov. Schwarzenegger, but maybe there is a sequel and please put in more Dr. Ron Paul. I saw this when it premiered on Showtime about a dozen times afterwards too and have waited a very long time for this. This is probably the only movie besides Michael Moore movies that upset me after watching it and continues to point out where the U.S. Government has failed us all.
