America's War on Drugs Is Fuelling the Migrant Crisis

President Donald Trump often rails about migrant caravans traveling from Central America to the United States in search of asylum. But he rarely discusses why those migrants are fleeing their homes in the first place. That might be due to the fact that America's War on Drugs has played and continues to play a huge role in turning countries Guatemala and Honduras into places where the annual death toll is on part with actual war zones.  

And that's especially ironic since Trump wants to build a massive wall along US-Mexico border to keep migrants as well as illegal drugs from pouring into America, yet it's America's militant approach to drug prohibition that is driving migrants away from their homes in the first place. Find out why in this video from Vox.


This Massachusetts Democrat - and 2020 presidential candidate - has a strong history of supporting veterans' access to medical marijuana. Over the years, Congressman Seth Moulton has acted as the primary sponsor on three cannabis-related bills—all of them focusing on improving veteran access to medical marijuana. As an Iraq War vet himself, Moulton has taken a strong stance in supporting the health and well-being of other veterans who continue to be barred from accessing medical marijuana - even in states where it's legal - because federal prohibition prevents Veterans Affairs from letting vets use medical cannabis.
