Why is Morgan Freeman narrating this documentary on the War on Drugs? Not sure, but damn if it isn’t comforting. See what 40 years of failed policy has wrought — from villainized weed, to the lucrative over-incarceration of Americans, to the political consequences of our perpetuation of the opium commerce in Afghanistan and tragic mismanaged of government resources.
Featuring interviews with current and former presidents from around the world, such as Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo over the United States led War on Drugs and expose what it calls the biggest failure of global policy in the last 40 years.
Breaking the Taboo was directed by Cosmo Feilding Mellen and Fernando Grostein Andrade. See the whole 1-hour doc of comprehensive interviews, cut modestly with dramatic slow-mo line cutting and info-graphics on how a $1,000 kilo of cocaine magically transforms into a $170,000 kilo of cocaine by traveling from Columbia into the US.
