What’s the drug war about? American psychosis, born of racism, but now one humongous wholly misguided attempt to put children into a protective bubble. But now there is some hope for change in the right direction, according to Ethan Nadelmann’s TED talk. He is Director of Drug Policy Alliance. Brilliant talk, concluding with a call to end the drug war.

    I would change this slightly, to say that it is time to replace the “war on drugs” with sensible medical care. Drug addiction is primarily a medical condition and should be treated as such. Handling addiction as a crime forces it underground, where it can remain untreated and entrenched — not unlike the problem of ebola in Africa, where people in some towns deny that the disease exists and, thereby, enable it to flourish.
