The Business of Drugs – a 6 part series taking a clear-eyed approach at the lack of expected success in drug enforcement. What are the incentives, economic & psychological that keep the market flow of narcotics despite a generational trail of violence? 50 years, over $1 trillion to fight, drug prohibition has not only not worked but the problem is worse than before.
Series doesn’t admit defeat in the war on drugs. Instead, demands looking at policies, socio-economic solutions rather than just the war, asking if prohibition has real hope of working or is it a residue of a moralistic stance that may no longer be relevant. Powerful, factual, thought provoking to watch while stuck at home.
