The Drug War Against Black America

November 24, 2015—The Future of Freedom Foundation partnered with the Morgan State University Pre-Law Association to organize a one-day conference on the drug war. The event took place on November 14, 2015 and footage is now available.

During the conference, speakers from several backgrounds discussed the US policies against drug use and commerce and how the government’s approach creates unintended consequences that disproportionately impact the African American community.

Speakers who participated in the event include Washington Post’s Radley Balko, Neill Franklin from Law Enforcement Against Prohibition (LEAP), Kassandra Frederique from the Drug Policy Alliance, Baltimore attorney Joseph Scalia, and Seema Sadanandan from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU).

The talks focused mostly on the negative consequences of the US war on drugs and what we as Americans can do to fix the problem.
