Dear Videonews Subscribers,

As record crops of opium poppies are being grown in Central Asia, and
the flow of illicit drugs into the United States continues unabated, the
debate about the so-called Drug War is ramping up. Featuring law
enforcement professionals from all political strips, DAMAGE DONE: THE
DRUG WAR ODYSSEY is an essential contribution to this dialogue.

"The smartest documentary yet on a divisive subject."
-Vancouver Sun

"With testimonials from cops and judges from Texas and Florida to
Vancouver and California this is one of those rare documentaries that is
so eloquent and concise that you couldn't think of a better way to
express or even explore the subject."
-Only Magazine

DAMAGE DONE: THE DRUG WAR ODYSSEY
Directed by Connie Littlefield

After 30 years of drug war, illegal narcotics are decreasing in price,
increasing in purity and demand continues to surge. As much as 80% of
all felony crime is caused by drug addiction. DAMAGE DONE: THE DRUG WAR
ODYSSEY introduces a group of cops who have spent decades fighting the
war on drugs. They may be libertarians, Republicans, socialists or
evangelical Christians, but they all believe that illicit drugs should
be in the hands of government, not criminals. Among the pro-reform cops
is the legendary Frank Serpico and retired police captain Peter Christ,
who spent 20 years enforcing drug laws before co-founding the group
LEAP: Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. These men, and the other
officers in the film, once supported the War on Drugs. Find out why they
changed their minds.=20
