35 years after Nixon started the war on drugs, we have over one million non-violent drug offenders living behind bars. 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.

American Drug War shows how money, power and greed have corrupted not just drug pushers and dope fiends, but an entire government. More importantly, it shows what can be done about it. This is not some ‘pro-drug’ stoner film, but a collection of expert testimonials from the ground troops on the front lines of the drug war, the ones who are fighting it and the ones who are living it.

After 4 years of production including several sold out test screenings in New York, Austin & Los Angeles, the final version of American Drug War: The Last White Hope is locked and loaded.

    all of this shit will pass away and the american experiment will serve as example of how not to aproche a subject. In the end we need these examples to further evolve as human beings and try not to forget our global history for it provides a well earned wisdom, often taught through violence, discrimination, corupted ideals and sacricice. There is no good or evil in this world, its evolution.

    yup is good movie :) but Amsterdam isnt a country but our capital lol

  • Lol

    Rofl! Dear self-proclaimed Arizona or whatever sheriff – the fact that you didn’t even correct the narrator regarding Amsterdam and that it is infact a city and not a country shows that you have never been to Amsterdam and know nothing about it. Bodies lying around the streets? What a moron.
