The War on Drugs

This is a very interesting TED Talk about the war on drugs – how it started, why drugs are illegal, and the current debated around legalizing some drugs. I’m not saying every drug should be legal, but there is something behind the notion that making something illegal makes it more lethal and dangerous (i.e. prohibition). Ethan Nadelmann is a drug policy reformer and founded the Drug Policy Alliance, and this is his powerful talk about the condition of the world of drugs.
