The War on Drugs and Marijuana Legalization

By Lindsey Bogott

This podcast is about the war on drugs and the legalization of recreational marijuana in the
United States, more specifically in states where it has already been legalized, and how that has affected incarceration rates for minorities. I delve in to the history of the war on drugs and bring in specific examples from the Supreme Court, podcasts, and authors. Bringing in content from California’s Proposition 64, which passed on Tuesday, November 8, 2016, I then transition into the positive and negative components of legalization of marijuana in regards of minorities, using interviews from students that come from California, Washington, and Colorado.
