ETHAN NADELMANN URGES NAACP TO FIGHT FOR DRUG LAW REFORM
Ethan Nadelmann, Executive Director of Drug Policy Alliance, gives an impassioned presentation to the NAACP that addresses the harms of the US drug war. He speaks from the perspective of a human rights advocate. "... I hope and pray that as reforms come up...we all recognize a moral obligation to reduce the role of criminalization in drug policy. We need to move to a place where our drug policy is grounded in science, compassion, health and human rights.
