The Drug Truth Network (DTN) is a media production organization dedicated to exposing the fraud, misdirection, and wastefulness of the “war on drugs.”
Claiming the Moral High Ground - A Global Indictment of the War on Drugs video features 19 government officials and high level experts from around the world, all greatly desirous of being a part of this "indictment'. These experts describe in great detail the misery, the ineptitude, the corruption and the myriad horrors we inflict on ourselves and the whole world by continuing to believe in the policy of drug prohibition. Thankfully they also provide the simple solution, first to decriminalize to prove a point and then ASAP to legalize, regulate and actually control these now ludicrously named "controlled substances."
Arthur Rizer is an author and founder of the ARrow Center for Justice Reform, an adjunct professor at George Mason University’s Antonin Scalia Law School. He writes for The Atlantic. HIs latest: "Police Militarization Gave us Uvalde".

I have consulted with more than 3,000 drug policy experts to include NIDA scientists, doctors and researchers as well as consulting with sitting judges, district attorney's, police chiefs and sheriffs, prisoners in the pen and users in alleyways. I consult with many high echelon officials to include then President of Mexico Vicente Fox, Portugal's Drug Czar and the Founder of the Global Commission on drugs.
