How the flawed Rat experiments launched the drug war

Much of our shared understanding about drugs and addiction came from a series of studies done in the 1950s and 60s on lab rats.

Should we approach marijuana differently than heroin or cocaine? Let us know what you think in the comments and check out other freethink wrong videos
