Film: "Raw Opium: Pain, Pleasure, Profits"

Wed, 2013-02-13 18:00 - 20:00

Co-sponsored by The Drug Policy Alliance and the Institute for Policy Studies

This insightful documentary demonstrates the need for health-based drug policies and offers creative solutions to reduce the harms of drugs and drug prohibition.

Raw Opium is about a commodity that has tremendous power -- both to ease pain and to destroy lives. The opium poppy is the raw material for heroin, fueling a vast criminal trade larger than the economies of many countries. Join us and see how the opium poppy plays a pivotal role in the lives of people who grow, manufacture and use it -- and in the increasingly tense sphere of international relations.

The event is free and open to the public.
