Episode 2 of a three-part documentary that exposes the problem with drug policy and human rights. As more and more countries want to regulate the cannabis market to protect public health, no state can take for granted that the drug prohibition is necessary. Instead, liberty interests are at stake and the European Court of Human Rights has been asked to rule on the legitimacy of the prohibition quest.
For more than 50 years, governments have failed to subject drug laws to critical review, and this series expands upon the failure of the state to protect the citizenry in times of moral panic. As shown, the prohibition is a threat not only to society but also to citizens whose rights remain ignored, and this documentary provides the basic insight needed to help humanity out of a collective psychosis.
Episode 2 – Challenge to the Drug Law
Episode 2 expands on the disconnect between human rights and drug policy. To the extent that a regulated market is better for the protection of public health, the drug prohibition cannot fulfil a legitimate purpose. Instead, the morality of the drug law is exposed as an evil to be deposed and this episode presents the argument for human rights violations.
