This was a great book that had a lot of information about the black market - unbelievable stories about marijuana, porn, and illegal immigrants. Some of the stories are very sad but important to read.
Great read about something nobody really thinks about, the black market is and always will be a part of capitalist economy. It also gives a fasinating look into how porn today came to be, and also the part about strawberry farmers may change how you buy this fruit.
Schlosser does it again, exposing startling trends in todays society: the rise of the marijuana culture, uncontrolled illegal immigration, and the proliferation of sex for sale. An apropos exposition of Americas burgeoning black market operations.
It's actually 3 seperate tales in one but all deal with black market economies: illegal immigrants in agriculture, porn flicks, and of course, "reefer." Thus, the title. Really well-done, very readable and informative.
