It is now 100 years since drugs were first banned in the United States. On the eve of this centenary, journalist Johann Hari set off on an epic three-year, 30,000-mile journey into the war on drugs. What he found is that more and more people all over the world have begun to recognize three startling truths: Drugs are not what we think they are. Addiction is not what we think it is. And the drug war has very different motives to the ones we have seen on our TV screens for so long.

A very compassionate revealing of the people on all sides of the drug wars. The 100 plus years the book spans makes the reading very long. I found myself coming back after breaks to digest the humanized accounts of a very complex and misunderstood fight of fearing the unknown.
I learn new perspective on this subject and allowed myself to be alongside some of the the key characters of wars and the ones that challenged the status quo. I have no doubt I will revisit the chapters of this book to relive the many discoveries of the wars and how it is challenged.

Your past is not your past if it’s still impacting your present. Do you ever feel as though your life has become a broken record? You’re hearing the same song play over and over again? Nearly every human being on earth has likely spent some time on the carousel of pain. Whether you’re dealing with the guilt and regret of your own sinful choices, or you’re sitting in the shame of someone else’s deceitful actions, God wants to bring you healing.
