Colleen Cowles is an attorney, an advocate, a Mom with personal experience, and author of the new book, War On Us: How the War on Drugs and Myths About Addiction are a War on All of Us

www.WarOnUs.com



The War on Drugs is the most deadly example of the devastation caused by top-down policies and mandates,

Goals:

Help listeners to understand that the War on Drugs affects THEM - even if they've never taken an illegal drug -- with a discussion about the ways this 'War' impacts all of us. Part of this discussion could be how myths about addiction, perpetuated by top-down policies, have created many of the issues that affect so many aspects of life for all of us.

Provide listeners with an understanding of how we ended up with a devastating addiction and overdose epidemic and 1 in 3 American adults with a criminal record. I'd appreciate a discussion that helps listeners to question status quo, to consider that continuing these policies is the radical approach, and that ending them is the most rational, safe, humane and proven path to success.

. Give listeners tools to help in creating practical, measurable change including techniques to save lives and to help in moving policy toward proven, compassionate, achievable solutions.
