Fourteen years after decriminalization, Portugal has not been run into the ground by a nation of drug addicts. In fact, by many measures, it's doing far better than it was before.
This film explores first hand the dramatic effects of this policy, with Earth Angels front and center in the investigation.

The Very Last Forest in Brazil
About half of the world's tropical forests have been cleared, according to the FAO. Forests currently cover about 30 percent of the world’s landmass, according to National Geographic. The Earth loses 18.7 million acres of forests per year, which is equal to 27 soccer fields every minute, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). It is estimated that 15 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions come from deforestation.
If deforestation continues at its current rate, the entire Amazon Rainforest will be depleted by the end of the 21st century. Some of the valuable fruits, spices and other plants that this gem yields include coconuts, avocados, lemons, grapefruit, bananas, guavas, figs, oranges, pineapples, mangos, tomatoes, corn, potatoes, rice, black pepper, cayenne pepper, chocolate, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, sugar cane, turmeric, coffee, vanilla nuts and cashew nuts.
Incredibly, about 25% of the modern prescription drugs that come from plants actually hail from rainforest vegetation. These include drugs that tackle cancer, AIDS symptoms, viruses and infections.

This separate documentary project with Earth Angels Agency will serve to build awareness about ongoing community issues in multiple countries. It will also generate a separate revenue stream that will continue to serve these communities.
