Episode 149 – Today on Surreal Talk we’ll be talking about the “War on Drugs.” From the prohibition of Marijuana in the ’30s, Nixon’s direct declaration of war on drugs in ’71 to the Just Say No and Dare programs of the ’80s and ’90s, the War on Drugs has been fought for the better part of a century. Lately, the maturation and general enlightenment of society have generated the side effect of a public less scared and outraged with drugs.
Today we discuss the utter failure of the war on drugs ranging from the outrageous amount of money spent, mass incarceration, racial inequalities when considering incarceration of drug offenders, the CIA and Crack, and so much more. Join us as we discuss the War on Drugs on this episode of Surreal Talk.
