Naya Arbiter, vice president of the Amity Foundation, a nonprofit that provides drug treatment services, and Sarah Gordon, HIV counseling coordinator with the MN Dept. of Health, joined Dick Swanson Aug. 2 to discuss the possibility that approaching drug use as a public health issue rather than a crime would save money and lives. The conversation was prompted by a recent documentary film. "Breaking the Taboo." You can watch the 52-minute film at hulu.com. See a brief trailer here.
