If drugs were legal, BBC Documentary

http://topdocumentaryfilms.com

Free 60 minute documentary by the BBC "If drugs were legal". Real interviews, mixed with a fictional tale in a hypothetical world where drugs are deregulated (aside from Smack & Nose Candy). Great points are brought up throughout the movie. Unfortunately even with so many indisputable facts, the debate at the end proved that people will always believe government is required in order to keep people safe.

American Prohibition Has Killed 28,000 Mexicans in The Last 4 Years

http://www.bukisa.com

“The costs of that war have long since reached intolerable levels: more than 28,000 of our fellow citizens dead since late 2006; expenditures well above $10 billion; terrible damage to Mexico's image abroad; human rights violations by government security forces; and ever more crime. In a recent poll by the Mexico City daily Reforma, 67 percent of Mexicans said these costs are unacceptable, while 59 percent said the drug cartels are winning the war.”

Teen accidentally texts sheriff for weed, cops use discretion

http://www.tokeofthetown.com

It's usually best not to text the sheriff with a marijuana purchase request. That may seem obvious, but a Helena, Montana teen sent a text message last week looking for pot -- and instead of contacting the dealer, he hit a wrong humber and accidentally sent the message to Lewis and Clark County Sheriff Leo Dutton.

The drug detective got both of the teens' parents involved, and ended up deciding not to issue any citations.

"When the detective saw there were parents that wanted to be involved he took the right action and I'm really proud of the deputy," Sheriff Dutton said.

Boardwalk Empire: New HBO series about alcohol prohibition

http://www.theagitator.com

In Martin Scorsese’s new HBO series Boardwalk Empire, Steve Buscemi plays the de facto political boss of Atlantic City during the dawn of Prohibition. He’s involved in everything: glad-handing, gaming, bootlegging, and the violence and women that come along with those things. Like almost every role Buscemi has ever played, his character is neither likable nor despicable. Like all his memorable characters, Buscemi plays the miserable hero.

Free the 'Shine! Why it's finally time to legalize liquor

http://www.youtube.com

Federal agents still raid distilleries much like they did during Prohibition, and making any amount of moonshine at home is not only illegal, it's a felony that can carry up to five years in prison. The result is a market dominated by a few big names, where would-be craftsmen are forced to hide their work.

And yet, despite the danger, America is in the midst of "moonshine renaissance," in which a new wave of hipster hobbyists has joined with old-time 'shiners to flout the law and do what they love to do.
