The War on Drugs affects more than just people and the economy — it affects the earth. This moving and informational presentation will bring to light the far-reaching negative consequences the Drug War has on the environment, not just in places of prohibition, but in countries far away. Innocent farmers’ crops are destroyed, livelihoods are ruined, and the natural beauty of the land is lost as a result of ridiculous policies.
Our featured speaker will be Sanho Tree, director of the Drug Policy Project at the Institute for Policy Studies. Mr. Tree is an expert on the topic, and we highly encourage you to come to this event and to bring friends, too. Click here for more info.
When: Monday 9/24, 7:00pm
Where: Benjamin Banneker B Room, Stamp Student Union, UMD
