Study: Global war on drugs is failing
(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - New research suggests the global war on drugs is failing.
A study published by the British Medical Journal finds illegal drugs have become significantly cheaper, while their potency has increased.
In addition, the price of illegal drugs internationally has fallen despite a general increase in police seizures.
Researchers say the war on drugs has heightened crime, corruption and violence, but done little to slow the sale of illegal drugs.
