Time to Get Real on Drugs
Deaglán de Bréadún
Great to hear journalist Ed Vulliamy suggesting it was time to extend the idea of ethical behaviour from activities such as air travel or the purchase of clothing to the sphere to drug usage. He has a new book called Amexica, about the US-Mexican border, where horrific misdeeds are being perpetrated by the drug gangs. This is the other side of the coin to the middle-class coke-sniffers at their house parties. He also pours scorn on the idea of legalising hard drugs. To listen, click here. Vulliamy is also highly-critical of the US “war on drugs”: click here.
