Speakers of the opening session of the International Drug Policy Reform Conference call to end the war on drugs
The film crew of the Hungarian Civil Liberties Union (HCLU) is attending the International Drug Policy Reform Conference in Los Angeles, California. We filmed the speeches of the opening session where not only activists but politicians (Democrats and Republicans alike) declared a war on the failed war on drugs.
Gavin Newsome, California Lieutenant Governor said the 40 years old war on drugs is an abrupt failure and it is inexcusable and unacceptable that there are more than 2 million people behind bars in the US. He called for stronger leadership and louder voice to end the war.
