The public's perception of drugs and drug use is changing. And with it, the decrim movement is in full swing. Soon the FDA is expected to approve psychedelic-assisted therapy.

There’s the potential for liberation but also for oppression.

Season 5 - EP 3: Self-Made
Decades after Richard Nixon declared the war on drugs, our evolved understanding of drug addiction has ushered in a new understanding of mental health and the flaws of the criminal justice system, and with it, a resurgence of an age-old medicine, once criminalized — now used as a form of healing.
In Episode 3, we meet the children of the drug war and discover how they’re navigating this newfound exploration of psychedelics to find personal healing.
Wise Ones: Ayize Jama Everett, Educator; Mary Pryor, Detroiter, Entrepreneur.
