HuffPost's Shadow Conventions 2012 seek to shine a spotlight on issues you won't be hearing about during the major political conventions: the war on drugs, poverty and the influence of money in politics. Coinciding with the Republican National Convention this past week in Tampa, over twenty sections across HuffPost highlighted original stories showing the widespread impact of these issues across a variety of subject matters. We'll do it again in the week ahead during the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, but in the meantime check out a sampling of HuffPost's Shadow Conventions coverage in the video montages below:
