World Policy On Air, Ep. 150: “Budapest’s Drug Scare”

World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.

The Hungarian government has taken a law-and-order approach to address a rise in drug use, often targeting poor and minority communities in police raids. On today’s episode of World Policy On Air, drug-policy expert Peter Sarosi discusses the social issues, from structural racism to a lack of affordable housing, that contribute to high rates of drug use and are largely ignored by policymakers.
