WHAT SCHOOLS ARE SAYING
The lecture was extremely informative and enjoyable. Many Americans need to be more well informed on how the War on Drugs is failing and is hurting our economy, our citizens and is exploiting our countries, and Kevins discussions addressed many of these issues head on and backed up with facts and statistics. After the lecture Kevin addressed the audience and gave us a opportunity to ask questions about the war on drugs and also questions about his upcoming work such as his documentary The American Drug War 2. It was a very fun evening and even more importantly an educational experience.

The film was well received by attendees and the question and answer period after the screening was insightful. By sharing your own personal stories about legal and illegal drug use, I felt the audience could easily relate to the questions you posed in the film. In addition, your persistence in getting top of the line interviews was very impressive, and appreciated by the audience. I want to thank you for taking the initiative to create this documentary that reveals a variety of opinions on the war on drugs and the corruption it has lead to in our government. Thank you for making our event at CSU a success.
