Academic and social activist Noam Chomsky speaks about the failures of the war on drugs. He argues that the criminal justice-led approach of current drug policies is immoral and leads to discrimination, violence, destruction and crime, all at great financial cost. Chomsky makes the case that, in contrast, prevention and treatment are by far the most cost-effective and humane means of reducing the harms that drugs can cause.
