The war on drugs has been a constant battle in the world with no end in sight. The propaganda put forth by various governments about their individual efforts to combat drug trafficking is usually somewhere in between a lie and a cover up. "Drug Wars" exposes these fallacies as well as delves into the culture of drugs in various lands. It will show how drug culture is so tied into the economy and for some, the existence of entire communities as well as explore the violence and corruption spawned from the trade. Includes the true, previously unrevealed story of kingpin Pablo Escobar. Intense footage of executions, kidnappings and military violence. Dolby Digital 2.0. Running time 180 min.
