American Drug War: The Last White Hope (Full Documentary)

This documentary reveals why the so-called “War on Drugs” has been and will continue to be an utter failure. Billions upon billions of dollars have been spent to allegedly prevent the influx of substances Americans demand to have, yet their availability is at an all-time high. Marijuana and cocaine are illegal, yet alcohol and tobacco, responsible for more death and disease than any illegal substance, remain legal ‒ and extremely lucrative. And if one chooses to examine the Iran-Contra affair, an operation undertaken by various elements within the U.S. government to facilitate the introduction of illegal drugs into the United States, what may have passed for blatant hypocrisy quickly transforms into sinister strategy…

The War on Drugs has become the longest and most costly war in American history, the question has become, how much more can the country endure? Inspired by the death of four family members from “legal drugs” Texas filmmaker Kevin Booth sets out to discover why the Drug War has become such a big failure. Three and a half years in the making, the film follows gang members, former DEA agents, CIA officers, narcotics officers, judges, politicians, prisoners and celebrities. Most notably the film befriends Freeway Ricky Ross; the man many accuse for starting the Crack epidemic, who after being arrested discovered that his cocaine source had been working for the CIA.
