Audience Reviews for American Drug War: The Last White Hope
Some good points, but the movie-maker's hang-ups about his parents shine through and cloud this documentary. Repeatedly and needlessly bashing Republicans despite having US Rep Ron Paul and Gov Gary Johnson among other in the GOP supporting his position. Many good points and an angle on meth that I had not previously considered (that it is the modern-day moonshine) have lead me to consider advocating for the complete end to the War on Drugs rather than the much softer position I held previously. The connection between those who own the prisons and those who make the laws to fill the prisons is also another good point. Also explored was the CIA connection to both the heroin trade in Asia and the cocaine distribution in LA. Read both Dark Alliance and The Politics of Heroin to learn more of our government involvement in the proliferation of these drugs in the US.
Fairly interesting and fairly good :). I'm not a documentary fan, but as far as they go i liked this one :).
Very interesting, informative, and surprisingly amusing documentary about America's unsuccessful "war on drugs." What made it particularly enjoyable was the charismatic subjects that were interviewed to make this film possible.
