USA. "The war on drugs has been raging for 40 years. Over a trillion dollars has been spent, millions of people imprisoned, and countless thousands killed. The illegal drug market is worth $330-400 billion per year, drugs are cheaper and more prevalent than ever before, and in a growing number of countries drug cartels are the major threat to national security. Yet our governments carry on regardless." This is the message from a new documentary about the shocking failure of the 'war on drugs' and is backed by a number of public figures.
Breaking the Taboo is a documentary by Sundog Pictures. It features interviews with past US presidents, including Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, who admit they got their drug policies wrong. One day very soon we will get serving politicians, rather than retired ones, to admit that the current approach to cannabis and other drugs does not work, and never has.
The film is narrated by Morgan Freeman, and has appearances from Richard Branson, Kate Winslet and others.
