This week, Sam and Sarah take a break from the Drug Policy Alliance’s Reform Conference to talk about the latest news and some big questions: Will Phoenix, Arizona police who forced a man to eat marijuana end up costing their city millions? Will President Rodrigo Duterte re-structuring the Philippines’ violent crackdown on drug users make it any less terrible? Why is a Louisiana sheriff complaining about having fewer prisoners? And will new research on psilocybin’s effectiveness for treating depression help it become more accepted?
