Watch: Discrimination & Failed Drug Policy Go Hand in Hand

As the US wades back into its destructive War on Drugs, the EU should take note of the extraordinary costs of this type of drug policy.

The War on Drugs has been a disaster, costing the United States billions of dollars and leading to extraordinary discrimination within the criminal justice system.
