Today on Felony Friday David Borden joins host John Odermatt to discuss his long fight to put an end to the global war on drugs. David is founder and executive director of StoptheDrugWar.org. David played the leading role in pioneering the use of the Internet for education and organizing in drug policy reform after founding DRCNet in 1993.
Borden earned a degree with honors in Astrophysical Sciences from Princeton University in 1988, and completed a Master of Music in Jazz Composition from New England Conservatory in 1990.
StoptheDrugWar.org works to end to drug prohibition worldwide, and an end to the "drug war" in its current form. The organization believes that much of the harm commonly attributed to "drugs" is really the result of placing drugs in a criminal environment AND that the global drug war has fueled violence, civil instability, and a public health crises; and that the current policies toward drugs are unjust.
