    the whole point is, they don't want to fix the problem because it is working exactly how they set it up to work.. which is….

    the private prisons pay–> campaign money to govt> g–ovt makes more laws–> which grows police force–> which creates more prisoners–> which makes the prisons more money because they get paid per prisoner–> and start back at the top..

    you see, as long as there is monetary incentive not to fix something… it will never get fixed.

    Unbelievable! Due to the laws in Canada, we had to download this movie to watch it. It's the drug profiteers that have orchestrated the laws – including Clinton – Nixon ettc. that need to be locked up for crimes against humanity! It's criminal what they have caused and what they are doing for their selfish interest

    when you legalise drugs-you take away the power from the sellers, distributors, and makers because its no longer a highly prized item due to it being illegal. When you legalise , it can be produced properly and not the synthetic shit that kills people and makes them go crazy in the head. Its like cigarettes. When it was illegal, the gangs took control over its citizens and crime sky rocketed.Since its legal to purchase,you dont see any problems or crimes related to cigarettes.

  20. Sam J
    Sam J July 4, 2013

    plus you wont see prisons filled up with inmates on petty drug charges over small amounts-less inmates=less tax payer money spent to keep inmates in jail. People wouldn't need to commit crimes such as theft, murder,scams in order to get thier hands on drugs because it now freely available. People dont need to feed thier habits due to the cost. Cost of drugs can be less expensive if it were legal because drug dealers arent ripping thier customers off 99% of the time.

    history (prohibition vs non-prohibition in early 20th century) and experience (countries such as the Netherlands, Czech Republic, Portugal, where some drugs have been legalized for years or decades) prove the contrary… what facts do you have to support your claim?

    good flick. exposes the problem. but the lady gushing over obama in the end is part of the problem. obama cranked up the war on drugs to new levels, especially the war on marijuana. the destruction goes on, but people look the other way. time to get the government out of the drug business.

  30. lukaj1n
    lukaj1n July 16, 2013

    Or not. We can never predict how a situation might evolve, who knows? If Cocaine'd be sold in a supermarket for 10cents a line then I think everybody'd be snorting coke. Its really hard to say and its even harder to understand for people who haven't done drugs or haven't had an addiction.

    A vote for a democrat is a vote for bigger government and this is exactly what you retards get. Libertarians (right wing) support ending the drug war… but that doesn't matter to you food stamp using, obama phone calling, subsidized house living mother fuckers. Keep smoking your crack and blaming the white man for all yo problems… Welfare is not designed to lift you from poverty, it is there to keep your ass poor and dependent on democrats.

    Obama at the end was the only part of the movie I didn't like. But again, the scene was objective. I think the message was people want change, but don't really know how to go about it, so they just elect another president that whispers nice things in their ears.

  38. Bren Droid

    So I'm supposing there were no poor people back in the 19th century since there was no social welfare state keeping people poor? Or what's more likely, that you don't know what the hell you're talking about? Look the Libertarian cause tends to be hard to take seriously precisely because it's full of a bunch of crackpots like yourself who think somehow before Lincoln the country was a capitalist paradise where nothing bad ever happened (except people owning other people, but that's capitalism!).

    I just finished watching this.
    I always knew the Drug War was unjust, immoral, and solved nothing.
    But, I had NO IDEA how bad it really is.
    Had they made the case that the US Drug War was nothing short of a slow-motion concentration camp program targeting working class people at the beginning of the movie(and not at the end)…I would have dismissed it as extreme.
    But, after watching, I'm honestly left shaken.
    This is literally one of the top 10 systematic evils this world has ever seen.

  41. Ally Fiesta
    Ally Fiesta July 29, 2013

    I took obama at the end to be symbolic as now this is no longer about race but about rich vs poor. Obama has a very well off background & education something typical incarnated people do not.

  42. Andrew P
    Andrew P August 2, 2013

    This movie is a total farce. We are accountable for our actions and in-actions. I am where I am today in life because of decisions that I made, not my racial or socio-economic predisposition. The war on drugs is not some widespread conspiracy to destroy blacks, asians, and hispanics. I fully agree that the system should concentrate more on corrections and rehabilitation, the simple fact remains that this movie does not address individual accountability; it simply passes blame to others.

  43. Ghostland999
    Ghostland999 August 2, 2013

    I think religion also plays a big role in this massive problem. If everyone did their own research we'd have an informed society, but instead many people form their views in church. If the priest say's its bad, than the people just take it on faith. Faith is the worlds greatest enemy. It's the main reason (in my opinion) why this world is in the toilet.

  44. FranklinWTAtlanta
    FranklinWTAtlanta August 12, 2013

    The whole point is that the "problem" is not one or even two dimensional, and that the solutions are NOT as simplistic as "just say no," and, moreover, the system is now set to keep fighting this war, not for moral or health concerns, but purely for profit potential…if you don't find those facts disturbing, prescottaj1, you dont need a heart transplant…you need a starter kit!

  45. phillydogg1
    phillydogg1 August 14, 2013

    You are definitely where you are because of your racial predisposition, which informs your socio-economic predisposition. Because you are white, you are born with 20 times the wealth of your black counterparts. People inherit their socio-economic status and you can't tell me that that isn't white privilege. And personal accountability? According to the justice department, white people are 5 times more likely to be found with drugs but black are 10 times more likely to go to jail for them.

  46. phillydogg1
    phillydogg1 August 14, 2013

    Police concentrate all of their efforts into black and brown communities but most drugs are in white communities. According to the justice department, in 1964 two thirds of all American prisoners were white and 1/3 was people of color. Today, they are exactly opposite. The fact that u can say something so ill informed and not be challenged on it comes directly from your racial predisposition and that's called white privilege. The war on drugs IS white privilege. Read any book by Tim Wise.

    An intelligent person has to ask himself why any "authority" should have the standing to decide whether or not an informed, free adult human cannot choose for himself what he wishes to put into his body, for any reason.

    The "war on drugs" has destroyed more lives than the drugs themselves ever could have.

    It's not a war on drugs, it's a war on people.

  49. Benj Clarke

    Portugal decriminalized all drugs just a few years ago and their addiction rates dropped by half.

    Drugs aren't the healthiest thing, by nature, but the awful crime and violence associated with drugs is driven *NOT* by the drug users, but by the black market which drug prohibition supports and encourages.

    bullshit. i have some money, i have the possibility to smoke and snort everything i could ever imagine. i could've done that a hundred times for free. i never did it. and i will never do it. you gotta have some brains inside that head of yours. that's like natural selection. people who wanna use drugs and don't want to be helped will use drugs. whatever "war" and whatever "fight" you try on them. like the film said, the drug use NEVER decreased. that's all.

    That said. Doing drugs in itself is a curse. It is mostly a symptoms of things not going well for whoever does them. Yes, it can be recreational, inspirational, but for most it's an escape. We ought to work on fixing those reasons. If everybody was just using to expand his/her mind or have some fun, this would not be an issue.

    I agree with you though that the "war", the way it is fought is all what you said!

    Unfortunately we live in a corporate world right now that is fueled on profit and not humanity, If you want to make some money create a problem, then rake in the money by pretending you are solving the problem when actually the problem is just being prolonged, the same reason we won't have a cure for cancer in a society/system like this, there is more money to made in treating it rather than curing it, I have faith that people are opening their eyes to the oppression that enslaves us all.

    The War on Drugs has been a complete Failure!! We need to treat Drugs as a Public Health Issue not a Criminal Justice Issue!  Locking up people for drug possession changes nothing. Lets offer counseling and or rehab, those type of things. Putting somebody behind bars does not make addiction go away!

  67. RedTeamReview
    RedTeamReview January 20, 2014

    Okay LETS GET SOMETHING STRAIGHT HERE: Pot a.k.a Marijuana isn't as bad as meth, coke and heroine. Those people being locked up? a majority of them are being locked up for selling coke, meth and heroine but the latter are locked up for marijuana which is ridiculous. I don't agree with Marijuana being illegal and people who sell and have been caught in possession of it shouldn't be sentenced at all or even go to jail but the other drugs? should. This should be a war against the people who want to lock you up for profit. Marijuana should be legalized & sold by the people but if you sell coke, meth and heroine? jail

    The documentary is a joke. We should find a different way to combat drug addiction and NOTHING IS FREE, this documentary isn't free, youtube isn't free, etc so of coarse people are going to profit off imprisoning people who brake the law.

    MrAgent11421 February 1, 2014

    The war on drugs is a disgrace. Marijuana should have been legal years ago. The law enforcement people are making big money incarcerating good average honest hard working Americans for smoking pot. This is a tragic shame. .America now has more people in prison than any other country in the world. It is no longer the land of the free. As a war veteran it turns my stomach to think I fought for this country which punishes people in order to profit from it.

    One of the sad facts of this documentary is that many communities now rely on Prisons for jobs and money flow. To stop the present system of War on Drugs would be to create turmoil and upheaval in these communities so they will provide a lot of resistance. (Disclaimer: the documentary interviews prison guards who speak against this system)

  85. Peace Love
    Peace Love June 23, 2015

    Reasons why I believe all drugs should be legalized:
    1) Freedom of choice, every person should be able to choose what they put into their bodies. This is public policy issue.

    2) Danger with even the most dangerous of drugs typically has more to do with purity and dosages which can be better controlled in regulated markets. This is pharmaceutical issue.

    3) Non-commercial markets encourage the lack of reporting help to underfund gun violence, burglaries, gang activity, and violent crime. This is an economics and criminality issue.

    4) Illegality creates and encourages a public perception about drug users that never before existed. They lose jobs and are publicly ostracized for something humans have done for thousands of years. They are often cherry picked vices looked at unfairly and not given chances. This is an interpersonal psychology issue.

    5) The study of these drugs and their affects will change. Our understanding of psychology will change as we gain new technologies to better see their affects. Illegality creates barriers to research. This is science and research issue.

    6) They can make you feel good. This is an underrated interpersonal psychology issue.

    7) Young people should be educated about how to control and moderate the joy happiness they feel in their lives instead they are taught to just say no, which in some cases can be a downright impossibility. This is similar to the sex education arguments which say to educate and teach birth control over abstinence only. It may be necessary to explain to people when they should focus more on saving money than spending it. Developing better value practices is a part of growing up and substance users face unrelenting charges of skewed values that cigarette smokers, alcohol drinkers, and even other much more expensive risky pastimes can be associated with. This is an education issue.

    8) There is historical culture of substance use which is traced back to most ancient civilization that will be extinct unless properly preserved. This is a historical issue.

    9) Drug illegality is the primary leverage against minorities and nonwhite communities, also, more general speaking communities of poverty and lower middle class. These sub-groups are unfairly targeted and ostracized for the habits of a larger socioeconomic class.  This is a community, racial issue

    10) Recovery and Treatment options for substance users and abusers are currently, for the most part reserved for individuals with the resources and support structure that is not availible to many poor and underpriveledged neighborhoods and people.  Reasearch has shown that these 'harm reduction" based appraches are cheaper on a state and easier/better for a populace than more putative approaches like jail.  Drug user should have opportunity for employment and standard of living same as anyone else.  This is a treatment and community concern issue.

    With Trump the war on crime will be paramount
