The history and ethical problems with the war on drugs. We discuss the nature of addiction and why private prisons are an unethical place to house those who have substance dependency. We argue that we should focus on actual data and seek to be virtuous toward our addict neighbors, rather than merely looking virtuous to our upstanding and "together" neighbors. Discussion topics include initiatives to legalize cannabis, the history of the penitentiary system, methodone, and other social issues related to narcotics.
