LSEIQ Ep5 - Why haven't we won the War on Drugs? [Audio]
Speaker(s): Dr John Collins, Dr Michael Shiner, Danny Kushlick | We hope you’ve enjoyed listening to this year's programme of public events and that you'll stay tuned for the exciting programme of events we have lined up, for the new academic year beginning in September. In the meantime we have a brand new podcast series that we think you might enjoy. LSE IQ is a monthly podcast where we ask some of the smartest social scientists - and other experts - to answer intelligent questions about economics, politics or society. Recent episodes have tackled questions such as 'Whats the future of work?', 'Is social media good for society?' and 'What can Brexit tell us about the white working class?'. To give you a taste of LSEIQ the latest episode, which asks 'Why haven't we won the War on Drugs?', is available for you here in our public events podcast feed. To listen to other episodes and to subscribe, search for LSEIQ in your favourite podcast app or visit lse.ac.uk/iq . We’d like to hear your opinion too so why not join the discussion on social media using the hashtag #LSEIQ and please also consider leaving a review on iTunes or the Apple podcast app.
