Time to End the Longest, Deadliest War in History – The Global War on Drugs

December 13, 2011

“Ever since the War on Drugs, everything has hit the fan,” says Romesh Bhattacharji, former Narcotics Commissioner of India. Rather than continue the unnecessary and costly drug war, Bhattacharji advises the United States to simply “Relax, take it easy, [and] tolerate.” Last month, at the Cato Institute‘s “Ending the Global War on Drugs” conference, Bhattacharji’s sentiments were echoed by ex-drug czars, cops, politicians, intellectuals, liberal and conservative journalists, and even the former President of Brazil. Reason.tv attended the event and spoke with a number of the featured speakers, including:
 Glenn Greenwald, Salon.com Mary Anastasia O’Grady, Wall Street Journal Tucker Carlson, The Daily Caller Luis Alberto Lacalle Pou, Speaker of the House of Deputies, Uruguay Leigh Maddox, Law Enforcement Against Prohibition; University of Maryland School of Law Enrique Gomez Hurtado, former Senator, Colombia Larry Campbell, Senator, Canada Romesh Bhattacharji, former Narcotics Commissioner, India Eric Sterling, Criminal Justice Policy Foundation Harry G. Levine, Queens College (N.Y.) Juan Carlos Hidalgo, Cato Institute.
