Programmer's note on the film is out, as well as the showing schedule for anyone near Toronto:

Stylishly shot and cheekily framed as a subversive educational film, How to Make Money Selling Drugs takes a satirical look at a serious subject. Blending authentic reportage with pop culture references and a video game — like progression from level to level, the film illustrates step-by-step how to create a drug empire, from dealing on the corner to running a major cartel. Slyly, director Matthew Cooke builds a powerful case that drug policy needs rethinking, as current laws foster a violent criminal underworld reminiscent of the Prohibition era.

Recalling the hit Cocaine Cowboys, How to Make Money Selling Drugs offers expert testimony from a number of real-life outlaws, including Mike Walzman, who became the go-to dealer in Beverly Hills private schools, and "Freeway" Rick Ross, who recalls his invention of crack cocaine as if it were a fast-food innovation. We also hear from such familiar faces as Adrian Grenier, who was raised by a pot-dealing single mother; rapper Curtis Jackson, a.k.a. 50 Cent, who started dealing at age twelve; Susan Sarandon, who attests to the benefits of some illicit substances; Eminem, who talks about his struggles with legal prescription drugs; and Russell Simmons, who has dedicated himself to overturning punitive drug laws. Their testimony reflects the way in which drugs permeate all levels of society — and how, when it comes to drug law enforcement, punishment is disproportionately doled out to those who are dark-skinned and poor.

Watching this film against the backdrop of the current U.S. presidential campaign is a reminder of how rigid the discourse around drugs continues to be, and how the demonization of drug use by politicians only further commits society to an unwinnable "war." For meaningful change to ever occur, people need to put down their bong pipes and get organized. Beneath its snarky sheen, this film is a passionate incitement for action.


Schedule:

Friday September 7
Scotiabank 1
9:30 PM

Sunday September 9
Cineplex Yonge & Dundas 7
9:30 AM

Sunday September 16

Distribution plan:

Tribeca Film has acquired domestic distribution rights to “How to Make Money Selling Drugs,” a new documentary about the war on drugs, the company announced on Thursday.

The provocative documentary, produced by Bery Marcus and “Enoutrage” star Adrian Grenier, features interviews with everyone from 50 Cent to Eminem to Woody Harrelson.

Director Matthew Cooke and his team also interviewed high-ranking officials like the U.S. Drug Czar, seeking to find a unique perspective on the drug war. It is set up as an instructional video, taking the viewer through the 10-step process of how one moves from being a street dealer to a kingpin.

“This is a work that resonates with truth, anger and insight by an extremely talented filmmaker,” Geoff Gilmore, Chief Creative Officer of Tribeca Enterprises, said in a statement. “From politics to the police and drug dealers to drug users, the scope of Matthew Cooke’s examination of these illicit networks is extraordinary.”

Tribeca plans to release the film theatrically in 2013 day and offer it to viewers via on-demand day and date. The plan is to make it available in more than 40 million homes through those VOD offerings, as well as iTunes, VUDU, Amazon Instant Video and Xbox.


“Seeing this film find a home with Tribeca after all this time is definitely a dream come true. And the timing couldn't be better,” Cooke said in a statement. “Today America consumes a majority of the marijuana and 40% of the world's cocaine while simultaneously incarcerating more of its citizens than any country in the history of the world. We hope to encourage a national conversation on one of the worst public policy failures of the last 50 years. And do so in a way that's engaging, entertaining and inspiring.”

The film has already been shown at the TIFF festival. It's coming out in 2013 on DVD, not the end of this year.

Lightning Entertainment has acquired the international rights to “How to Make Money Selling Drugs,” a documentary about the war on drugs co-produced by Bert Marcus and “Entourage” star Adrien Grenier.

The film, which features interviews with 50 Cent, Eminem, Arianna Huffington, Woody Harrelson and high-level government officials, premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival to wide acclaim, prompting Tribeca Films to snap up the domestic rights.

It will be released theatrically and on VOD in more than 40 million homes next year.


“This is a uniquely dynamic documentary which is both incredibly entertaining, but also very insightful and profound in the message it delivers,” Robert Beaumont, president of Lightning Entertainment, a Santa-Monica based sales, production and distribution company, said in a statement. “The scope and intelligence of the filmmakers’ examination of the subject is extraordinary.”

Matthew Cooke directed the provocative documentary, which functions as an instructional video of sorts, tracking drug trades from the street dealer to the cartel chieftain.

A mélange of pop culture references and in-depth reporting, the film critiques the current war on drugs while also presenting the positions of the Drug Enforcement Agency and the U.S. Drug Czar.

yeah they were both documentaries so i understand, but can you imagine some interview you gave being released over 2 years later? it would seem weird to me cause in 2 years your whole mind-state can change and you might not even agree with what you said back then. Not saying that's the case, but that's why it is really weird to me.


People are going to use what ever they can to bring more attention to their creation, even if it is years older or even out of context.

It’s not only the poor who suffer, nonetheless. In a brief exposé moment, Eminem shares an intimate narrative of his own, discussing his dependency on the prescription drug Vicodin.

Slim Shady talks about overcoming his addiction, going three weeks without sleep, and having to regain both his motor and verbal skills as a result of withdrawal.

“It’s one of the most compelling parts of the movie,” Grenier says. “Ironically speaking, we think it’s important to have a little levity, and to look at the bright faces, the human stories behind these characters. But at the same time not to glorify drug use.”


Apparently the movie is going to be in theaters June 26th.
