CONTENT WARNING - This episode discusses mature themes, including illicit drug use and graphic details of murder. Listener discretion is advised.

The War on Drugs in the United States has cost $1 trillion since 1971, and 20 percent of the prison population is incarcerated for drug offenses. Yet there is little evidence it is responsible for declining drug use. How did the War on Drugs truly begin? Jaye explores US history and explains how Prohibition led to our nation's drug war.
