Richard Branson Gets It

Richard Branson has been writing a lot about the futility of the war on drugs. His latest blog post discusses the new documentary "How to Make Money Selling Drugs" directed by Matthew Cooke.

The documentary is framed as an educational film and takes a satirical look at the drug world - often the best way to get a serious message across. It investigates drug dealing and drug enforcement and includes interviews with everyone from top-ranking government officials to rappers Eminem, 50 Cent and Rick Ross.

I think Richard sums up many people's feelings on this issue, mine included, in his December 2011 piece "Time to End the War on Drugs." It's worth a read.
