Breaking The Taboo-War On Drugs


Narrated by Morgan Freeman, this is a MUST watch.

The War on Drugs has failed. After 50 years of prohibition, illicit drugs are now the third most valuable industry in the world after food and oil, all in the control of criminals. Drugs are cheaper and more available than ever before. Millions of people are in prison for drugs offenses. Corruption and violence, especially in producer and transit countries, endangers democracy. Tens of thousands of people die each year in drug wars.

 

Improving our drug policies is one of the key policy challenges of our time. The time for action is now.

2.5 trillion dollars spent so far on the War on Drugs
1 million people with HIV in Russia
500,000 prisoners in USA for drugs
30 countries use the death penalty
Over 47,000 murders in Mexico
The illegal drugs trade is worth $300-400 billion a year
150-300 million drug users in the world
