Unemployment got you down? Looking for a little extra spending money? Are you over your job and searching for something that’ll bring adventure and excitement back into your life? Or are you simply looking to power up like a coked-out Superman? (OK, that’s got nothing to do with anything, we just wanted to tie in the above graphic for no reason.) Well if you’re in the quest for sunnier pastures look no further, director and screenwriter Matthew Cooke is here to tell you how you can make a buck during these tough times by showing you the step-by-step process of rising up from corner hoodrat pusher to legit drug dealer to empire-like drug lord. The aptly named How to Make Money Selling Drugs is a documentary depicting both sides of the “War On Drugs” through interviews with 50 Cent, Eminem, The Wire producer David Simon, Arianna Huffington, Susan Sarandon and more. If you don’t think those names are knowledgeable enough, they’ve also scored an interview with drug kingpin “Freeway” Rick Ross. On the flip side, interviews with top-ranking government officials including the U.S. Drug Czar and others from the Drug Enforcement Agency are provided to offer both sides to the controversial and never ending topic. The documentary ultimately reveals how public policy actually entices Americans into dealing drugs — and let’s be honest, 6 figures a year doesn’t sound too bad to me. Do you have any idea how much student loan payments on a B.A. are these days? And learning from the pros on how to get my cut at the $400 billion dollar industry without having to enroll in a class? I’m in. There’s no release date yet for the film, but we’ll be sure to let you know when we’re on deck with the goods.
