The War on Drugs: Another War Lost?
In this week’s episode of Cautious Coffee, Austin and DeRae chat about the legalization and decriminalization of illicit drugs.
There is no serious doubt that illicit drug use and smuggling are detrimental to the human condition, and the United States has taken a hard line with its War on Drugs campaign. Former President Richard Nixon declared drug abuse public enemy number one.
DeRae attributes drug abuse to addictive behavior, while Austin doesn’t wholly disagree, they don’t quite see eye-to-eye. Austin lays out his plan on how he would tackle the problem, while DeRae says “the hell with that, legalize them all!”
