The problem of illegal drug use and trade is not a simple matter of supply and demand, it involves a larger variety of elements that tend to convolute a society to its core. In this video Roberto Blum provides information regarding such problem and presents possible scenarios of what could happen if society would agree on decriminalizing drugs for good. He explains how these substances have been present through history and how they have become an important part of many cultures around the world. He also elaborates on the complex dichotomy that has surrounded this topic regarding its prohibition and the role of the government on this issue, as well as the consequences it may carry in the future. Blum describes several types of enormous costs that war on drug trade bears for society and compares how free trade, fair regulations, and education on these matters would benefit everyone and enable a much more prosper and peaceful society.
