    In Reefer Madness, the best-selling author of Fast Food Nation investigates America's black market and its far-reaching influence on our society through three of its mainstays - pot, porn, and illegal immigrants.

    Boulderite says: "Great Investigative Journalism"
    "so what's the point???"
    Overall

    This book is full of information on the underground market surrounding migrant workers, drugs, and porn but there is very little synthesis or analysis of what should be done to stem these actvities. In each of the three essays, the author details the issue's history and lists numerous facts about the topic, but then fails to come to any solid conclusion about what should be done to end this madness. After the first hour or so I just kept thinking, "What's your point?". I thought that he would wrap things up in the end so I plowed on through hoping for a conclusion. Unfortunately, this never happened. He listed several plausible reasons for decriminalizing marijuana and porn but never went beyond saying that it was working in European countries. It left me feeling unsatisfied. After all the research that went into this book, I expected more in the way of a conclusion, a suggestion or a plan for dealing with these abominations, but got none.
