1. The "Modern" War on Drugs Prologued

    • History

Welcome to Season Two of Prologued, where we're doing a deep dive into the history of the Global War on Drugs over the past century. 

On the season premiere, we explore the idea of the "modern" War on Drugs waged by Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan in the 1970s and 1980s. 

As we will see, the development of the US drug war was deeply informed by experiences abroad...and to understand why the War on Drugs drags on, we have to trace those experiences back in time and across the globe.
