This week onThe Conspiracy Show Richard welcomes documentary filmmaker Kevin Booth to discuss the topics of his new film, American Drug War 2: Cannabis Destiny. The film explores claims that cannabis oil can be used as a preventative and a cure for diseases, with zero psychoactive side effects (something the Government and pharmaceutical companies don’t want you to know about). American Drug War 2 also examines the over-medicating of children, and the court ordered mind altering drugs used on foster children. Kevin will reveal how as a foster parent he was forced to give prescribed drugs to his foster daughter or otherwise be de-certified for not following court orders. And he’ll reveal how he traveled Juarez, Mexico with bodyguards, where he visited the most dangerous areas and interviewed cartels and family members of murdered victims. There have been 50,000 murders along the border and it continues to rise. He’ll lay out a case arguing that the American Drug War must end in order to stop the violence. And, he’ll reveal how the profits of Mexican cartels selling marijuana into California have been drastically diminished due to California’s open-minded marijuana laws.
