This movie..

is absolutely phenomenal.

It shows the absolute insanity of the drug war. It pulls no punches and exposes every ugly detail for what it is.

It also shows a way out.

I cant recommend it enough.. This is absolutely awesome.

Wow.

This movie is awesome. I highly recommend it!!

drug dealers are a natural phenomena...

ecological blowback from reducing the shamans role to santa clause and a bottle of anti-depressants.

A true flower can not blossom without sunlight and a true man can not live without love.

Drug dealers are hacks

Most are small time. Yes, they understand basic concepts of economics that are a step above the 8 year old in the lunchroom who realizes he is the only one with a chocolate snack pack.

Most own no capital and engage in fraud and impure products. Where are their trucks? Where are their factories? Where are their employees and how far do they really reach?

The real entrepreneurs to admire are the business owners with capital/equipment and a labor force - whose products and services require engineering and real skill beyond that of a college kid and a high volume lamp setup he bought as kit at the local hydroponics store.

I want to end the war on drugs and end victimless crime. I would move to nullify drug offenders if I sat on a jury, but I am not going to praise these guys as great entrepreneurs.

But if these guys don't have the capital, who does? If you haven't, check out: American Drug War: The Last White Hope

You're correct.

when these street dealers say they made $4000 in a day its revenue not profit. Street level dealers rarely make much money plus when you take into account the fear and probability of being robbed or arrested. Not to mention that you are dealing with dangerous people and can easily find yourself indebted too... Also it is difficult to invest the money you make since its illegal so you have to continue doing it to maintain any improvement in your quality of life. Dealing drugs is not glorious. Only few people make millions off the blood and sweat of many..

Drug Dealers Saving the Economy

Changing the drug laws could actually help save the economy. Tax the drugs, cut down on medical costs by treating addicts, employ more medical clinicians to do so, entrepreneurs can start their own legal grow houses and shops, drastically cut down on law enforcement expenses by ending the war on drugs, drastically cut down on court costs, drastically cut down on prison costs, allow people to try alternative drugs that are cheaper and more effective than prescription drugs (with fewer side effects), and make it harder for kids to get drugs. Every high school and college kid knows its easier to buy marijuana than beer. That could change with an end to prohibition. You wouldn't have to lay off a single police officer. You'd just shift their focus to violent offenses and property damage. There would be a whole lot fewer officers being harmed in drug-related arrests because there would be no drug-related arrests.

You want the government to

You want the government to tax and regulate and license and treat?
That sounds just as bad as the liberals.

Real libertarians would want the current drug trade legalized in it's current condition.

You have to entice the liberals

over to your side some how. Is it a perfect idea? No. But I'd argue that thousands of deaths and millions of incarcerations are worse.

Wouldn't those people who

Wouldn't those people who don't have licenses still get incarcerated? Pot became legal in The Netherlands in licensed cafes, but backstreet dealers are still being arrested there.

Yep

and that's why even though I'm opposed to drug use I cheer the success of online drug-selling site Silk Road, made possible by Bitcoin.

There was a good feature on it on Australian tv:

A couple good quotes:

It reduces the potential for violence and because there is a rating system there it increases the recourse to justice if a seller sold you something that wasnt as described.

Q: Is that website another example of us losing the war on drugs?

A: Yeah, most certainly it is.

Capitalism at its finest

High risk, high reward.

Scarcity leads to higher prices.

All of this is the government's doing.

Why the downvotes?

This trailer is to a video that shows the hypocrisy is our drug laws and how it created a booming multi-billion FRN black market. Perhaps before down-voting you should watch the clip!

“When a well-packaged web of lies has been sold gradually to the masses over generations, the truth will seem utterly preposterous and its speaker a raving lunatic.” – Dresden James

because you say it features lobbyists arguing for tougher laws

it makes it sound initially like this is pro drug war if you vote up

why am i downvoted?

it says: "featuring a series of interviews with drug dealers, prison employees, and lobbyists arguing for tougher drug laws."

some people could read this as saying that it features all of these people arguing for tougher drug laws, and downvote it for that reason.

Downvotes

are likely coming from the same people who don't fully investigate something before they make a decision.

In otherwords,

it is based off emotion.lol If I do not know the subject matter, I have no business voting for or against, but this post is pretty strait forward, that is of course if one takes the time to watch the videos.

Oh god! You're making Ron Paul look bad!

You're making the Liberty movement look like a bunch of druggies! For the love of god, stop it! You're ruining the future of the movement. THEY are going to use this against us. This is bad!!! How can you do such a thing?!

For someone

going through the storm of the century, you certainly didn't lose your sense of humor ;) Keep dry and hold onto that humor, it goes a long way.
