Why the War on Drugs Needs to End (Episode 38)

By now, it should be pretty obvious that the War on Drugs has been a complete disaster on so many levels. But amazingly, we still hear people make the arguments that we just haven’t done enough to fight drugs, and if we give in and legalize it, that will just signal that we, as a society, condone people getting high and becoming addicted to dangerous substances.

In this episode, we discuss what’s wrong with the drug war, why it needs to end ASAP, and what are some alternative ways to think about and treat drug addiction.
