The War On The War On Drugs
THE WAR ON THE WAR ON DRUGS is the first feature film to take targeted aim at the US government's ineffectual and costly anti-drug campaign. The film’s comedic indictment unfolds in a series of 60 satirical vignettes that use a variety of cinematic styles to parody the government’s drug war propaganda and those insistent on enforcing it. The film lampoons the twisted logic and blatant lies at the core of the America’s obscenely expensive anti-drug efforts. Parodies include: a 1970’s educational reel- providing information on Meth lab fire safety and how to find a dealer you can trust; a 1950’s black and white Sci-Fi flick; anti-drug ads; a how-to cooking show featuring hash brownies; a kid-TV show starring puppets that dispense drug information; and a news "exposé" revealing eerie comparisons between DARE and Hitler Youth. What ultimately emerges is the startling realization that the drug war is far more dangerous than the drugs it purports to eliminate.
