Richard Falk – On (Not) Loving Henry Kissinger

There is an irony that would be amusing if it was not depressing about news that Donald Trump has been courting the 92-year old foreign policy sorcerer Henry Kissinger.

LEGAL POT IN OHIO?

With Political Science Professor BOB FITRAKIS we discuss the very controversial Proposition 3 which would establish legal corporations to grow and dominate the marijuana trade in Ohio. The details of this proposition are so mind-binding you will have to listen to this discussion to sort it all out (we dare you!!!)

We also talk about our new article WHY THE DRUG WAR HAS BEEN A FORTY-YEAR LYNCHING (www.freepress.org) which gets to the bottom of how Richard Nixon and the Republican Party used the War on Drugs to change the nature of politics in America. Among other things, some FORTY MILLION PEOPLE have been arrested for drugs in the US since 1970, with many millions of them losing the right to vote. This helped swing the south to the GOP and give it control of the US Congress.

It’s a mind-boggling issue. Toke up and take a listen!!!
