When discussing the decriminalization of drugs in Portugal,Chasing the Scream states, “Nothing has to stay the same. If a dogma is not working, no matter how strong and immovable it seems, you can cast it aside and start anew” (Hari, 2015, p. 235).
Discuss your thoughts on this statement as it relates to ending the “war on drugs” in the United States, and be sure to discuss and consider such topics as prohibition, decriminalization, and legalization of drugs.
