Giz-Gad-OverlordHere at the Giz Lab we use logic and reason to come to our conclusions on any given issue of the times. With that said our conclusion on the war of drugs? In a short sentence.

Co-author Dr Evan Wood, scientific chairman of the centre, said: “We should look to implement policies that place community health and safety at the forefront of our efforts, and consider drug use a public health issue rather than a criminal justice issue.

With that in mind we thought we would share this video of a 20 years Retired Police Captain and his thoughts on the war on drugs.
