Narrated by Oscar winning actor Morgan Freeman, "Breaking the Taboo" is produced by Sam Branson's indie Sundog Pictures and Brazilian co-production partner Spray Filmes and was directed by Cosmo Feilding Mellen and Fernando Grostein Andrade. Featuring interviews with several current or 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.

Not a bad movie, but still no one tells the truth:

1. gov't has no authority in law or morality to regulate drugs in any way

2. the real impediment to legalization is the vast profits that go to the cia, local cops, prison industrial complex, banks through money laundering, etc., and the control of the population that the drug war allows. The drug war was the excuse for ending financial privacy. The longer the drug war continues, the larger the ancillary drug economy becomes and the less likely this monkey will ever be thrown from humanity's back.

3. the biggest factor in addiction is the removal of children from their parents to incarcerate them in schools.  

Some of the band aid proposals would be better than the status quo. However none of the proposals in the video hit at the root.
