American Drug War: The Last White Hope
‘American Drug War: The Last White Hope’ 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.
Texas filmmaker Kevin Booth, inspired by the death of four family members from “legal drugs”, set out to discover why the Drug War had become such a big failure with over one million non-violent drug offenders living behind bars since the war started.
Three and a half years in the making, the film includes expert testimonials and follows gang members, former DEA agents, CIA officers, narcotics officers, judges, politicians, prisoners and celebrities, and even Freeway Ricky Ross, who was accused for starting the Crack wave, and who after being arrested discovered that his cocaine source had been working for the CIA.
