I am apparently in a reading frenzy these days. I just knocked off Reefer Madness: Sex, Drugs, and Cheap Labor in the American Black Market by Eric Schlosser. The book is not all about marijuana, although it would certainly be compelling enough if it was only concerned with that one topic. Instead it’s three essays on the economic monster that is the Black Market in America. The first is on the “drug war”, the second is on migrant workers in California, and the third is about the porn industry. All three are deliciously intriguing and certainly more than enough to convince even the most apathetic reader to actually do something as maniacal as vote.
Schlosser also wrote Fast Food Nation: The Dark Side of the All-American Meal, which was just incredible. I read that one in one sitting. It’s frighteningly enlightening.
