Know the War on Drugs
Here is a list of some of the most knowledgeable persons in the State of Florida regarding the harms associated with Drug Prohibition. The US Drug War has been exported around the world, affecting our foreign policy, putting soldiers in harms way and creating a multi-billion dollar world wide black market. While the impact of drug abuse on families can be devastating, the impact of US Drug Policy has led to a society riddled with illegal drug money, an ever rising drug related murder rate and the corruption of law enforcement and political figures.
By contacting the speakers in your area about alternatives to the current Drug Policy, you are exploring issues that touch upon prison overcrowding, the doctor patient relationship, alternative therapies, property and state rights, person autonomy over ones body and the connection between civil liberties and drug laws.
Many of these speakers are available to speak outside their area. Click on the link to find their speciaties, biographical data and contact information.
