Druglawed full movie review - This extremely well produced documentary details how New Zealand became involved in cannabis prohibition and the USA's global war on drugs.
Druglawed is the most comprehensive and up to date documentary investigating New Zealand's role and history regarding cannabis prohibition and the USA's global war on drugs.
Extremely well produced and skilfully edited, this movie clearly and comprehensively covers the entire NZ cannabis story, starting with the cannabis based medicines of Mother Mary Joseph (Suzanne Aubert) all the way through the lies and deceit that initiated prohibition, up to the current day. This movies makes it very clear that drug prohibition is an absolute failure as a policy. Yet, prohibition continues to destroy lives for no good reason.
Filmed over a period of more than four years, edited together from hundreds of hours of interviews and law reform protests, this documentary illuminates the activist and law reformer side of this struggle, a side of the story that the NZ news media constantly fails to report.
However, don't be mistaken into thinking this is simply a documentary made by activists, for activists. Druglawed should be viewed by absolutely everyone in order to fully comprehend the senseless waste of continuing with the failed war on drugs.
Druglawed is one of the best documentaries I have viewed on this subject ever, easily as good as other drug war documentaries I have viewed from elsewhere in the world.
Druglawed is the best full length New Zealand documentary you will see in 2015.
