Description

If you pay attention to mainstream media, you’d notice that many outlets are recognizing June 17, 2021 as the 50th anniversary of the “war on drugs.”

Actually, the racist and deadly drug war goes back much further than conventional wisdom suggests, and was originally waged by an authoritarian bureaucrat that most people likely have never heard of.


We think it’s important to understand the REAL history, to understand how others, including Nixon and Reagan, built on its foundation over the many decades since the war on drugs truly began.
