"How To Make Money Selling Drugs" documents the drug war and features Woody Harrelson, Adrian Grenier, 50 Cent, and Eminem. The documentary, written and directed by Matthew Cooke, talks about the broken dream in America and how selling drugs provides a 'get rich quick' scheme for many.

The AMC series "Breaking Bad" features a chemistry teacher that turns to selling illegal drugs (methamphetamine) to support his family when he gets diagnosed with terminal cancer. The character, Walter White, encounters extreme difficulties with the law and organized crime to make and sell the drugs. However, if legalized, Mr. White could make a lot of money as an elite chemist without the inherent dangers in trafficking narcotics.

Below is the trailer from the documentary "How To Make Money Selling Drugs." Do you think you would sell drugs if it were legal?



THEAGITATOR.COM reports:
I helped out a bit with this movie. I also give some commentary for about 20 seconds of it. It's a really creative way to look at the drug war.

    because , the thrill of getting away with something would be gone and no one would want it anymore.

    Exactly. That's why dealing drugs is a popular choice among ghetto kids raised by hip-hop: it's a way of getting away with something in spite of it being illegal...because according to rap, you're not a REAL black man unless you are risking your freedom and life to make money illegally, instead of holding down a real job.
  • Rhio2k 2012/08/09 16:03:55
    no dealing illegal drugs in the ghetto is lucrative, a regular job pays very little, and the gov still wants a big chunk of what little you have. if your in the ghetto it is because there are few jobs to be had that pay well, consider that no company wants to locate in or near a ghetto. poverty is like a vicious cycle.

    If you're LIVING in the ghetto/projects instead of just staying there for under a year, you have a history of stupid choices behind you: not saving your money (blowing it on overprices shoes, clothes too big for you, rims and a stereo from a rusty crap-car that guzzles gas), having babies you couldn't afford starting as a teenager, choosing to sell drugs (and get arrested repeatedly, earning convictions which bar you from decent jobs) instead of getting a real job, and most of all not saving with the singular purpose of leaving the ghetto/projects.

    if the drug trade where made legal that would then mean one would have more competition to have to deal with. thinking in terms of economics that would mean trying to undercut the competitor's or even sell a higher quality product for less. and that doesnt also rule out the concept that illicit substances pose health hazards.

    The War on Drugs was conceived by evil white men to oppress people of color. Does anyone think we have a loving government that cares about people? Really now!

    So you think the government cares for you, but you don't think substance prohibition is an errant allocation of resources which exacerbates social decay and the prevalence of criminal activity?

    There are actually a disproportionate number of non-white addicts.

    This isn't due to any alleged ethnic inferiority, but rather due to minorities being treated like political livestock.

    Democrats have been buying minority votes and making dependents of them for decades.

    Let me know when you are ready to get off the drugs and or stop being misguided and infleunced by the drug dealers and drug addicts.
    There is only a relatively small percent of citizens that insist on habitually consuming the drugs as compared to the overwhelming majority that have the common sense to not get involved in the first place.
    Oh, I get what your trying to allude to.....being a drug consumer or drug dealer or pro drug consumption advocate is considered more adult by way of your thinking!

    "Let me know when you are ready to get off the drugs and or stop being misguided and infleunced by the drug dealers and drug addicts."

    I don't use drugs.

    "Oh, I get what your trying to allude to.....being a drug consumer or drug dealer or pro drug consumption advocate is considered more adult by way of your thinking!"

    No, I'm for liberty. Over 30% of prison inmates are there for nonviolent drug offenses. One's mind and body is his to do with as he pleases. If one chooses to destroy his mind and body, it's not your place or the state's place to intervene. Substance prohibtion creates a criminal blackmarket, which is a far greater detriment to public safety than drug use of any sort. Furthermore, the violence spawned from prohibition effects everyone, including nonusers.

    All though if it were legal I doubt the profit would be as great. Seems like cheeseburgers are the drug of choice now days, so you're probably better off selling fat laden foods to fatties then drugs to druggies. But hell yes sign me up a nice plot of land off the grid to grow beautiful ladies away from corporate America. That's pretty much my dream.

    Definitely not. Even if it was legalised I wouldn't because I know what it can do to people and I would feel guilty forever. Unless your a pharmicist and is selling it to help people.

    that is true I have seen the statitistics, I believe the number is like 90,000 people a year due to prescritpion drugs used according to directions, but of course they wont' say that they will say they died of heart failure of some other thing, to make it appear they died of natural causes not by drug usage. of course sick people use more medicines thus it could be coincidence but I am not to sure.
