How To Make Money Selling Drugs

Saturday, August 4th, 2012

I helped out a bit with this movie. I also give some commentary for about 20 seconds of it. It’s a really creative way to look at the drug war. The first part looks at how dealers, mules, hit men, and the rest of the criminal side make money off drug prohibition. The second part looks at how drug testing companies, police departments, prosecutor officers, politicians, and the rest of the drug war infrastructure profit from drug prohibition.

It’s also fun to watch. Beautifully, vividly shot. And I can now say I was in a movie with Woody Harrelson, Adrian Grenier, 50 Cent, and Eminem.

    Quick, quick, calculate your Bacon number!

    And if you can get your Erdos-Bacon number to be still in single digits then you are indeed a rare one.

    According to The Oracle of Bacon, his Bacon Number would be 3 since Woody Harrelson, Adrian Grenier, 50 cent, and Eminem all have Bacon Numbers of 2.

    And I believe that was Chris Rock with the money quote:

    “Government: They don’t want you to use YOUR drugs, they want you to use THEIR drugs!”

    Cant wait to see it, but that is a terrible preview. They should have chosen satire or authentic horror, rather than trying to do both.
