War on Drugs: failures, misconceptions and alternatives.

program date: 
Mon, 06/06/2011

Bill and Sanho talk about the reasons why the war on drugs has failed to curb abuse while defying empirical evidence about usage. More importantly, Sanho points out, the Drug Warriors fails to grasp why some people use drugs and why most others don't: the lack of means to lead a purposeful life, which Sanho believes would be the greatest deterant to drug abuse.

Sanho Tree is director of the Drug Policy Project, which works to end the domestic and international “War on Drugs” and replace it with policies that promote public health and safety, as well as economic alternatives to the prohibition drug economy.
