What is your take on the drug war?
I am convinced that we would benefit hugely by changing course on our war on drugs and moving towards an approach based on regulation, taxation, treatment, and education. Below are some people and organizations who are rethinking what our policy toward drugs should be going forward. These people include former presidents from around the world, a former US Secretary of State, a former UN Chair, current and former law enforcement officials, academics, and students. This is serious business, and I am glad that high profile people are throwing their weight behind changing our approach for the better. But in order to change our policies, we need everyone to learn about the issues and get involved.
