WATCH: Jay Z “The War on Drugs Is an Epic Fail” (Short Film)

September 15th, 2016 By HG 0

The New York Times has released a short film, narrated by Jay Z and featuring the artwork of Molly Crabapple, which serves as part history lesson and part vision statement on America’s war on drugs.

The film which is just under four minutes, puts into perspective not only how America’s war on drugs is an “Epic Fail” but also highlights how whites get rich doing the same thing African-Americans go to prison for.

The project came about when, last year, Dream Hampton, the filmmaker and a co-author of Jay Z’s book “Decoded,” approached the Drug Policy Alliance about collaborating with Revolve Impact, the social impact agency she works with.
