Okay, let's get those questions in!
Matthew Hall

I'll start:Politics are about power and from the Andean perspective, people who benefit from drug prohibition have political power, generally. But that doesn't seem to be the case in the United States. Given that, why has the war on drugs had such staying power?
Ian Oakley
01:01:35
How responsive is drug use to changes in price, risk, availability, and normalcy?
Robert Bennett
01:02:09
With the decriminalization of many illicit illegal drugs in places like Oregon, what are other ways governments around the world are enabling this war? Is allocating trillions of dollars to this war on drugs a waste of money since it has been so extensive and only seems to get worse?
Ferryn Diggs
01:02:34
Good morning, do you believe that if the United States takes a stand on decreasing the demand for drugs, like offering needle trade in programs like other countries, that the war on drugs would eventually end?
Isaiah Williams
01:05:17
What are ways that weaker governments could build trust with their citizens to reduce participation in the trade of drugs?
Francisco Coronel
01:08:40
Excellent perspective and understanding of a very complex issue: legal vs illegal drugs!.Can you comment on the number of deaths due to cigarette smoking, alcoholism, opioids vs cocaine? In summary legal vs illegal drugs relationship to demand and deaths?
Madison Grant
01:12:30
You mentioned that you do not foresee a world without the war on drugs. However, do you believe we have made progress in recent years, has the issue has worsened, or has it been relatively stagnant?
Julio Felix
01:17:54
Since producing drugs and selling them to other countries is so lucrative(especially to low income communities), do you see a way for the war on drugs to end in the near future?? Is there some other incentive countries can be given instead of producing and selling these drugs??
Raichelle Smith

Why can drugs can be described as having hidden dangers?
Aaron Karp

Raichelle Smith

Good morning let me rephrase is there legitimacy in the justification for the war on drugs that there are many “hidden dangers”? If so, what is the explanation for the recent findings of health benefits with various drugs?
Francisco Coronel
01:49:14
