Thanks to Eric Schlosser’s revelatory 2001 book Fast Food Nation, we know all about the horrors of drive-thru food. It’s in the same spirit that the Schlosser-co-penned documentary Food, Inc. exposes the dirty secrets of the food industry responsible for most of what we buy in the supermarket. It’s all here, and it’s not pretty: tainted food; abhorrent working conditions; environmental violations and a profit-centered system that churns out unhealthy food that keeps us fat. The more you know, the less you’ll want to eat.

Poll

The Milwaukee Common Council is debating a proposal that would reduce the municipal fine for possessing a small amount of marijuana from $250-$500 per violation to no more than $50 per violation. Do you support this change?

Getting poll results. Please wait...
