I recently saw a wonderful movie titled, “How To Make Money Selling Drugs”. It’s not your usual documentary although it did get 7.8 rating on IMDB which is a very high rating.
The title is tongue in cheek. It doesn’t really promote selling drugs. It’s about the War on Drugs, Mandatory Minimum Sentencing for Drug Crimes, Building more Prisons and Imprisoning More People (especially minorities like Black & Brown people and Latinos & Chicanos).
I loved this film and think that if you are interested in any of these issues, you will find it extremely interesting. I would like to recommend it to you whole heartedly. IMO, it was one of the best movies I had seen in a long time.
My favorite thing about this movie is that it features an ex-cop named Barry Cooper (in the second half of the film) who became a star Federal agent doing drug raids and eventually became disgusted with the entire rotten legal system as it applies to drugs. He has made several videos to help people who have been wrongly busted by crooked cops. Here is a sample:
Closely related to his videos, you might want to check out two excellent videos about talking to the police without a lawyer present. You can find them by Googling:
regents university “never talk to the police”
The video “never talk to the police” was made of a Regents University professor named James Duane who explains why people who are taken into custody by police should never talk to them until they have a lawyer present.
I found these videos to be closely related to the movie and to convey some of the most eye-opening information I’ve ever seen.
I hope you will enjoy this movie and videos as much as I did. Even if you only like them a tiny fraction as much as I did, I’m sure you will find them to be a terrific viewing.
