“There is no war on drugs because you cannot have a war against inanimate objects. There is only war on drug addicts. Which means we are warring on the most abused and vulnerable segments of the population.” – Dr Gabor Maté
The War on Drugs has raged since the 1960s under a belief that shaming and punishing addicts would incentivize them to stop using drugs. Fast forward half a century and epidemic of addiction has only gotten worse at incredible cost to our society’s mental health. Why did we implement such a terrible policy? What was the science that supported this policy and how was it flawed? And what can we actually do as a society to truly help addicts recover? These are some of the questions that this video, featuring Johann Hari, answer. In 8 minutes, you’ll have a whole new perspective on the War on Drugs and how what we can really do to solve the issues so many of us face in our personal lives.
