This Funzing Experience:
Is The War on Drugs Working?

Former undercover police officer and drug law activist Neil Woods explores the origins of the global drug war, especially in the USA - where drug prohibition was always about who was perceived to be using drugs, rather than about the drugs themselves.

First, Chinese immigrants who worked on railways, then black people with their apparently 'strange' music, and then Mexicans. Domestic racism shaped drug policy in the USA but then became a global moral crusade. A fanatical obsession has driven foreign policy in relation to drugs.

The UK Misuse of Drugs Act in the UK has established our nation as a subjugated colony to U.S. moral imperialism. Will things continue this way?

Venue: The Taproom, London Fields

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.

Funzing Talks is a new concept which aims to re-invent your after work drinks. We've pulled together an impressive array of leading entrepreneurs, intellectuals, bright thinkers and incredible individuals to inspire your evenings.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks event makes the perfect after work activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
