Drawing on his experiences with addicted patients from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside, Dr. Gabor Maté discusses how the medical and legal systems are failing in the so-called war on drugs. He reads from his book In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts, and suggests ways in which our approach to dealing with drugs and drug addicts could be improved.
