I follow superhero politico Cory Booker on Facebook. Recently he shared this video Breaking the Taboo and it blew me away. Well worth an hour of your time. Watch it here:
To Ban Ki-moon and all Heads of State:
We call on you to end the war on drugs and the prohibition regime, and move towards a system based on decriminalisation, regulation, public health and education. This 50 year old policy has failed, fuels violent organised crime, devastates lives and is costing billions. It is time for a humane and effective approach.
You can sign the petition here.
Ending the drug war is a humanitarian issue.
