65 - America's Drug War, Part 3: Laws Made for Breaking

CONTENT WARNING - The following episode discusses mature themes, including illicit drug use and political assassinations. Listener discretion is advised.

In the third installment of America's War on Drugs, Richard Nixon makes good on his second chance at becoming president of the United States in 1968, instituting his "law and order" policies during his president, chief among them sweeping anti-drug policy. These policies concentrated mostly on cannabis and opiates such as heroin, but also overhauled the way the federal government addressed drugs. Jaye provides context to the America of the 1960s, and discusses Nixon's War on Drugs as key to his crusade to end the social and political change the 1960s represented.
