Episode 149: the honest drug book

In this episode we are going to talk drugs with the author of The Honest Drug Book Dominic Milton Trott. His book presents the hidden truth about a topic which touches the lives of almost everyone. It cuts through the blustering rhetoric of the war on drugs, and documents the facts about the subject in general, and about the individual drugs specifically. Check it out:

Note: I make a comment on the #metoo movement in this episode, and it seems a few women fail to see my point. To be clear, I am not against the movement and I think it is essential for a change to happen. I simply pointed out that there are other issues in the world that no one EVER seems to care about. Currently in Congo more people have been murdered in the last 20 years, than Hitler killed in his camps... why?

So people can have smartphones and be able to tweet #metoo.

What is happening in Congo is an issue that is important to me, and I was simply pointing out that whilst #metoo is also very important, it would be nice to see the rich privileged world join hands and stop the atrocities that are happening just so we can REMAIN rich. If you do not understand this perspective I am sorry you got triggered.
