Alan Watts on The Drug War

Alan Watts takes a break from talking about Consciousness and The Cosmos to discuss some important social issues. The result is one of the clearest, most insightful radio broadcasts about drugs, spirituality, law, power, and government since the invention of radio itself.

Here’s a great spreadsheet I found; when you look at the numbers, it just makes it so obvious that the War on Drugs is not about public health at all, and that the legal status of various drugs has nothing at all to do with their physical, mental, and spiritual health effects (all numbers in this spreadsheet are from http://www.bbc.co.uk/sn/tvradio/programmes/horizon/broadband/tx/drugs/survey/).
