Narrated by Morgan Freeman, this groundbreaking new documentary uncovers the UN sanctioned war on drugs, charting its origins and its devastating impact on countries like the USA, Colombia and Russia. Featuring prominent statesmen including Presidents Clinton and Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo and expose the biggest failure of global policy in the last 50 years.
Seriously, Morgan Freeman’s on our side now — the war on drugs’ days are numbered
Continuing a year of unprecedented accomplishments (Helping pass a decriminalization and good samaritan bill in Connecticut, equalizing campus marijuana policies, taking over the UConn student government, attending the 2011 DPA conference, and bringing 13 chapter members across the country to Denver for SSDP 2012), UConn’s chapter was given the Campus Change Award in honor of it’s recent feats. In addition to this award, UConn had two chapter members, Sam Tracy and Jason Ortiz, elected to the SSDP Board of Directors.
The work done up to this point isn’t over just yet as the chapter is continuing to lobby for the medicalization of cannabis to pass this year as well as furthering efforts to diversify the chapter with events like ‘The New Jim Crow: Racism in the Drug War’. Keep any eye out for UConn on this year’s High Times list of top marijuana activist schools, as they should finally (and deservedly) crack the top 5.
