Breaking The Taboo is a 50 minute documentary about the global war on drugs. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the documentary has kickstarted a global conversation on the failing War on Drugs. Many countries have adopted humane and health focused approaches to drugs but the US relies on incarceration and as a result has the largest incarcerated population in the world. As more US states recognize medical marijuana and legalize marijuana, communities are beginning to break the taboo around drugs and treating drugs as a health problem.

Breaking The Taboo is a 50 minute documentary about the global war on drugs. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the documentary has kickstarted a global conversation on the failing War on Drugs. Many countries have adopted humane and health focused approaches to drugs but the US relies on incarceration and as a result has the largest incarcerated population in the world. As more US states recognize medical marijuana and legalize marijuana, communities are beginning to break the taboo around drugs and treating drugs as a health problem.
