We’ve had a couple years now to allow the drug court process to mature. We’ve had several “graduating classes” and a very good track record. We talked to the initial sitting drug court judge to get the framework of the court’s operations so now, let’s talk to several recent drug court participants and hear their stories from the inside. Join us this Sunday evening as we speak to Dan and Kurt and one of their biggest supporters, Blu.
In her new book Drug War Capitalism, Dawn Paley moves beyond the usual horror stories, beyond journalistic rubbernecking and hand-wringing, to follow the thread of the Drug War story throughout the entire region of Latin America and all the way back to US boardrooms and political offices. This unprecedented book chronicles how terror is used against the population at large in cities and rural areas, generating panic and facilitating policy changes that benefit the international private sector, particularly extractive industries like petroleum and mining.
It's not like there aren't many better ways to make money but selling drugs seems to generate revenue faster. It's not like there aren't better ways to feel good and confident but drugs seem to get people there faster.
How do we protect our young people from getting caught up in the life of drug elling and drug abusing?
Let's get right into this.
Do you know anyone that had the potential to do something great but chose to sell drugs?
Have you known anyone that lead an otherwise productive life EXCEPT that they had a little drug habit?
Have you ever lost a loved one to the drug game?
Do you think jail sentences for drug activity are given fairly?
Have you ever tried drugs of any kind?
What are your feelings about rehabilitation?
Do you think that it's easy to go straight after making money selling drugs successfully for a number of years?
Do you think that getting off of drugs is easier than people give it credit for?
Do you think that the Just say no campaign of the 80's was a good slogan?
What advice would you give to a young person that was in the beginning stages of selling or using drugs?

Today we will share the legacies of two individuals who have put themselves on the frontlines in the fight against the crimes of drug and human trafficking.
Robert Mazur served 27 years as a Federal Special Agent for the IRS, Customs Service and Drug Enforcement Administration. Five of those years were spent under-cover as Bob Musella, a high-rolling mob-connected big shot who infiltrated the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels.
Bob’s under-cover stings proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega and helped cripple an international multi-billion money laundering outfit that served drug lords like Pablo Escobar. His new book, The Infiltrator, provides vivid and nail-biting details about his life in the criminal under-world, including events that led to a $500,000 contract being placed on his head.
More than three decades after India won freedom and independence from Great Britain, a little girl from the southern region of India was stolen from her family and became a slave. She was seven years old. She lost her home and her identity. She kept only her first name – Rani.
When Rani lost her value to her slave owner, he sold her to an American woman who thought she was legally adopting an orphan. This adoption saved Rani’s life and the love and support she received in her new home has cultivated a commitment to become an advocate for the voiceless victims of human trafficking and a leader in the movement to end modern slavery.

Tonight- Six members of a Detroit police narcotics unit have been suspended after a surveillance video captured them taking away a box they never logged as evidence during a raid on a suspected drug house in 2011. These officers are believed to have been involved in other dubious raids on cannabis distribution centers in Detroit in recent months.
Have abuses by drug task forces become rampant in Michigan?
Joining us tonight will be the founder of Michigan Moms United, Charmie Gholson, an outspoken critic of the war on drugs, and civil asset forfeiture-
Also joining us will be attorney Jeff Frazier, who was one of the Pro Bono attorney's for ACLU of Texas during the racially motivated Tulia drug bust case, which resulted in over 300 innocent prisoners freed and the Texas Regional Narcotics Task Force System dismantled- Jeff is now residing in Michigan.

Our guest this evening is Lynn Paltrow, JD, Executive Director of National Advocates for Pregnant Women. We will be discussing drug use and addiction during pregnancy and the Alicia Beltran case--a Wisconsin women jailed for refusing to take the opiate buprenorphine.
The drug war has produced profoundly unequal outcomes across racial groups, manifested through racial discrimination by law enforcement and disproportionate drug war misery suffered by communities of color. Although rates of drug use and selling are comparable across racial lines, people of color are far more likely to be stopped, searched, arrested, prosecuted, convicted and incarcerated for drug law violations than are whites. Higher arrest and incarceration rates for African Americans and Latinos are not reflective of increased prevalence of drug use or sales in these communities, but rather of a law enforcement focus on urban areas, on lower-income communities and on communities of color as well as inequitable treatment by the criminal justice system. We believe that the mass criminalization of people of color, particularly young African American men, is as profound a system of racial control as the Jim Crow laws were in this country until the mid-1960s.

Professional motorcyclist Keith Code knows the ins and outs of the drug world first hand all too well. He's recently been named ambassador for the Foundation for a Drug Free World. Keith joins Joe to talk about the project and how we can all join forces to help keep our kids drug free. Tune in!
Have you had your healthy dose of reality lately?
There are always at least two sides to every story. Have you ever wondered how someone, who saw the same thing you did, walked away telling a vastly different story? Which version was correct? Which one was the REAL story? Actually, both are! It’s just a matter of perspective.
Joe takes the issues… especially the controversial issues (politics, prejudice, religion, illegal immigration)… and brings in people from different sides to share their viewpoint. This is definitely not a fluff piece. And while no one is attacked, the questions are hard-hitting.
But the conversation is always respectful and you’re sure to learn something new, even if you don’t agree!
If you’ve always wondered how the “other side” thinks and how they’ve arrived at their “stand”, then this is the show for you!
It’s not the right side, it’s not the wrong side, but the REAL side of the issues!
