This channel is for discussing and spreading awareness about the 'Drug War', especially cannabis prohibition, with facts and reasonable arguments. I'm a Canadian student, writer and journalist. I do not want more people put in jail or killed because of drug prohibition.

Please tell people what you know is true about the drug laws. Demand that Stephen Harper, Barack Obama, or whatever puppet runs your country, legalize cannabis!
