La drogue et ses ravages; drugs and addiction

Les ravages de la drogue (hard drugs) sont clairs. Voici pour commencer un documentaire de 50 minutes: Vancouver, la police, et les drogués – du jamais vu! Je croyais que la police roulait en voiture. Je croyais que la violence dominait la relation drogués / police. La réalité doit être différente de celle-ci mais ce coup d’œil décoiffe. This is a documentary that is in French, but it’s about the police in Vancouver patrolling East Hastings.

The war on drugs isn’t working. People have mostly preconceived ideas, use stereotypes, and are bigots. Here are some TED talks to help us open our minds after this French documentary.

Ethan Nadelmann: Why we need to end the war on drugs

And listen to also this because it’s mind blowing.
Johann Hari: Everything you think you know about addiction is wrong
