The Drug Truth Network (DTN) is a media production organization dedicated to exposing the fraud, misdirection, and wastefulness of the “war on drugs.” We invite you to share DTN’s “unvarnished truth about the drug war,” through our innovative radio programming, including Century of Lies, Cultural Baggage and 4:20 Drug War News. Dean Becker & Doug McVay produce nine radio programs per week for the Drug Truth Network (DTN). They have consulted with a myriad of experts in the field of drug policy, including Antonio Maria Costa, former head of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime; Donald Tashkin, M.D., of the National Institute on Drug Abuse; and hundreds of other scientists, doctors, prosecutors, patients and providers. Each year, DTN reports from numerous drug policy conferences around the United States.
DTN’s goal is to share the “unvarnished” truth with enough Americans to bring the current policy of drug prohibition to an end. Becker serves as a speaker for Law Enforcement Against Prohibition. Becker is a contributing expert for the James A. Baker III Institute at Rice University. He is a board member of the Drug Policy Forum of Texas, the National African American Forum and End Mass Incarceration, Houston. He is a partner with Drug Policy Alliance and served as a liaison for The New York Times Drug Policy Forum. His first book, "To End the War on Drugs,” was released in 2014 and is available on Amazon and Kindle.
