In the short film, Jay Z gives a brief timeline of the failed War on Drugs. It all started with Richard Nixon in 1971. Fast forward to the 2010s, White entrepreneurs benefit and dominate the “new” marijuana industry while blacks and latinos are victims of it. The illustrations are provided by Molly Crabapple, a New York-based artist, and writer.
