From the Drug Policy Alliance: Last week, Drug Policy Alliance Board Member Dr. Carl Hart visited the Philippines to speak at a drug policy forum. After criticizing the war on drugs and false drug science espoused by Philippine authorities, Dr. Hart was directly targeted by Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte.
Duterte has to do something to minimize the political fallout from losing Mindanao to the Islamists, which he’s probably about to do.
Trump’ said support of Duterte is one of the scarier parts of his presidency so far, in my opinion. It says a lot about how he wishes he could govern as president.
