Today’s podcast features Christy Thornton of Johns Hopkins University, discussing her recent New York Times op-ed on the complete failure of the War on Drugs and its impact in Latin America. We discuss how the Biden administration has moved forward significantly on admitting this within domestic policy, but how the war on drugs continues in Latin America with disastrous consequences. We also discuss why this is and how fears of Republican policy attacks lead to Democrats engaging in self-defeating policies, such as this one.
