Dazed and Confused (Part 1) drugs, drug laws, bullying, freedom, and Matthew McConaughey’s pink pants

On April 21 (the day after 4/20, but whatever, man) we took Whiskey Flicks to Nitehawk Cinema in Williamsburg for the first time to cover Richard Linklater’s 1993 coming-of-age classic Dazed and Confused, the winner of their Marijuana Madness Tournament.

This episode consists entirely of our pre-show, greenery-fueled discussion. The next episode will cover our post-show chat, as well as our return trip to Nitehawk the following week for Videodrome, the runner up in the MJ Madness Tournament – an excursion that took a surprising turn.

And, as promised somewhere in the middle of our discussion, some links to statistics on marijuana-related arrests and convictions:

ACLA – Marijuana Arrests By the Numbers
DrugPolicy.org – Drug War Statistics
Washington Post -More people were arrested last year over pot than for murder, rape, aggravated assault and robbery — combined
New York Times – Marijuana Arrests Outnumber Those for Violent Crimes, Study Finds
