11 Reefer Madness: Sex, Drugs, and Cheap Labor in the American Black Market Schlosser, Eric
Very Good. 
Hardcover. 1st edition hardcover with dustjacket 2003 Houghton Mifflin. Very clean; no marks; pages bright; binding tight; only light wear. 310 pages, Index, Notes, Bibliography. Language: English. 'From the bestselling author of Fast Food Nation comes this captivating look at the underbelly of the American marketplace. In 3 sections, Schlosser, an Atlantic Monthly correspondent, examines the marijuana, migrant labor and pornography trades, offering compelling tales of crime and punishment as well as an illuminating glimpse at the inner workings of the underground economy. The book revolves around 2 figures: Mark Young of Indiana, who was sentenced to life in prison without parole for his relatively minor role in a marijuana deal; and Reuben Sturman, an enigmatic Ohio man who built and controlled a formidable pornography distribution empire before finally being convicted of tax evasion, after beating a string of obscenity charges. Through recounting Young's and Sturman's ordeals, and to a lesser extent, the lives of migrant strawberry pickers in California, Schlosser unravels an American society that has become alienated and at odds with itself. Like Fast Food Nation, this is an eye-opening book, offering the same high level of reporting and research....'--Publishers Weekly, 2003.
