Want to know how to make money selling drugs? 50 Cent and Eminemwill tell you. The rappers feature in a documentary of the same name that takes an in-depth look at the US War on Drugs and the battle to enforce tougher drug laws. Fiddy and Em are just some of the big names in interviewed for the film, which also includes hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, actress Susan Sarandon and Fix interviewee Major Neill Franklin, Executive Director of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP).

The movie's synopsis (sarcastically) promises to show viewers, "10 easy steps that show you how to make money from drugs, featuring a series of interviews with drug dealers, prison employees and lobbyists arguing for tougher drug laws.” The movie will make its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival, from September 6-16. Drugs and hip-hop will be well represented: Snoop Dogg—sorry, Snoop Lion—will also premiere his documentary Reincarnated.
