America's failing war on drugs

In his article “A Mission Gone Wrong,” Mattathias Schwartz examines the history of the U.S. drug war, both at home and abroad. While domestic policies have changed significantly in the last several decades, Schwartz writes “overseas, however, the U.S. approach to drugs still looks a lot like a war.” Mattathias Schwartz joins us to discuss his investigation of a U.S. supported raid in Honduras and the history of the U.S. “War on Drugs.” (Photo: AP Photo/Rodrigo Abd, File)
