Is “war” an accurate (or desirable) analogy for shifting US drug policies? If President Reagan’s “drug-free America” is unrealistic, where instead might we hope to end up?
A panel discussion with Michael Botticelli, acting director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy; Kathleen Fryndl, author of Drug Wars in America, 1940–73; Former Colombian President Cesar Gaviria, a member of the Global Commission on Drug Policy; and Hamilton Morris, a research chemist and expert on synthetic and psychedelic drugs. Moderated by journalist Mattathias Schwartz.
