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.


For cannabis enthusiasts living in adult use states, long gone are the days of sneaking around with a dime bag in a coat pocket and worrying about whether the neighbors know you’ve got weed. But the sad truth is that, for millions of Americans living in prohibition or restrictive medical-only states, accessing safe and regulated cannabis is still a problem. But does that mean that those living without access to the regulated market are abstaining from cannabis altogether?
