Hooked: Illegal Drugs and How They Got That Way

One of my favorite documentaries on The History Channel is called Hooked: Illegal Drugs and How They Got That Way. They trace the history of the drug, and focus on how it became illegal. There’s usually a pretty strong anti-prohibition message to be gained from them. In fact, these documentaries are what really got me outraged about the drug war.

So if you’re interested in the history of illegal drugs, and have some time to kill, the YouTube videos of three of the four documentaries are below (the one on LSD and Ecstasy is missing, which is too bad, but nothing can be done about it).

Marijuana:



Heroin/Opium:



Crack/Cocaine:



Enjoy.
