The Culture High
The handsomely constructed documentary “The Culture High” makes a compelling — and to our mind irrefutable — case that the so-called “War on Drugs” has been a kind of dystopian slow-motion holocaust. Director Brett Harvey has assembled an impressive roster of talking heads, including members of Law Enforcement, to explain clearly and conclusively why drug prohibition is ineffective, costly, and, ultimately, a disastrous stain on society. If you still believe the “just say no” propaganda, if you think “throw all the druggies in prison” is the answer — “The Culture High” will be as pleasant as an icy shower. And for the soiled mind, utterly necessary.
