Support the independent voice of Miami and help keep the future of New Times free.

Remember the part in Cocaine Cowboys 2 where some guy declares, "Through practice, I became the Michael Jordan of crack cookers," and then reveals his recipe for making the best crack ever? 

Well, apparently the New Zealand Office of Film and Literature Classification isn't too keen on drug-making instruction and has banned Cocaine Cowboys 2, according to Rakontour's blog

I understand how the sequence might upset people, how people might find it objectionable, but if you Google "how to make crack cocaine," you come up with 1,870,000 results. Maybe the Office of Film and Literature Classification should censor Google as well. Feel free to let the censors know what you think.

New Zealand is asking that the offending sequence be removed; otherwise the rest of the film is just delightful. 

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
