Breaking the Taboo

The War on Drugs has failed. After 50 years of prohibition, illicit drugs are now the third most valuable industry in the world after food and oil, all in the control of criminals.

Drugs are cheaper and more available than ever before.

Millions of people are in prison for drugs offences.

Corruption and violence, especially in producer and transit countries, endangers democracy.

Tens of thousands of people die each year in drug wars.

Breaking the Taboo
Narrated by Oscar winning actor Morgan Freeman, “Breaking the Taboo” is produced by Sam Branson’s indie Sundog Pictures and Brazilian co-production partner Spray Filmes and was directed by Cosmo Feilding Mellen and Fernando Grostein Andrade. Featuring interviews with several current or former presidents from around the world, such as Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo over the United States led War on Drugs and expose what it calls the biggest failure of global policy in the last 40 years.

IMPROVING OUR DRUG POLICIES IS ONE OF THE KEY POLICY CHALLENGES OF OUR TIME. THE TIME FOR ACTION IS NOW.
