Drug policy reform: The missing link to climate justice

 

The International Coalition on Drug Policy Reform and Environmental Justice has published its first report, Revealing the Missing Link to Climate Justice:  Drug Policy here

 

This episode of Earth Matters looks at how the war on drugs and international prohibition regime support organised crime, encourage corruption and, as Clemmie James puts it, is a "wrecking ball" for the environment,  impeding international efforts to protect the environment and prevent climate change.
