A Book We Love: Reefer Madness

Reefer Madness: Sex, Drugs, and Cheap Labor in the American Black Market by Eric Schlosser

What do migrant workers, marijuana, and pornography have in common? They are all part of America’s underground market place. Eric Schlosser takes the same hardnosed investigative approach to black markets in Reefer Madness as he did to the fast food industry in Fast Food Nation. Schlosser gives a surprising and detailed account of how illegal markets work in the United States and who profits from them. Interesting Tidbit: Reefer Madness was listed as one of the New York Times Most Notable Books of the Year for 2003.
