Reefer Madness: Sex, Drugs, and Cheap Labor in the American Black Market by Eric Schlosser
Eric Schlosser (author of Fast Food Nation) returns with an exposé about the black market in the United States in Reefer Madness. He details three areas of the underground economy: marijuana, pornography, and illegal immigrant labor. He charts the growth of these industries as part of the country's economy and the hypocrisy of those who rail against these industries and yet spend their money within them. He refers to marijuana and pornography as "two commodities that Americans publicly abhor, privately adore and buy in astonishing amounts." Salon.com says, "Reefer Madness is more of a guided cultural tour, by turns infuriating, depressing and weirdly entertaining, than a polemic."
