Edward James Olmos Supports Legalization of Drugs

Back in October of 2013, the Los Angeles Latino International Film Festival (LALIFF) hosted its latest film festival in the heart of Hollywood.

One of the more controversial selections at the festival was the documentary Narco Cultura. The film covers the many aspects of Mexican culture in both Mexico and the US that have been affected by the rise of drug trafficking organizations including some that glorify the narco way of life.

There was a brief Q&A panel after the screening and festival co-founder Edward James Olmos took a few minutes to express his views on how the legalization of drugs could change society in a positive way citing Portugal as an example.
