Nothing so corrupt and violent as the war on drugs.

Watch for this film, based on a true story. American Violet tells the story of Regina Kelly, a waitress in Texas. The local police conducted a series of militaristic "war on drugs" raid in the black community rounding up dozens of people and manufacturing charges against them. Kelly was one of those victimized by this authoritarian program. She fought back.

The war on drugs is the most violent, corrupting influence in American society today. Drug warriors are not serving the public and they are not protecting us. They are criminals. They deserve neither our respect nor our money. Hopefully this film will wake up the decent majority and help them understand that the war on drugs has to be ended.
