Regarding bias in this video. We did an extensive research for this one, one of the longest we have done in a while (I put some of the sources used into the video description if you want to read more about it!). On top of that we checked with multiple experts to make sure we don't include wrong facts in the video (the first version actually stated something that was wrong so we changed it after speaking with a researcher). So we are pretty confident about the accuracy of this video.
Our conclusion after a long research phase and talking to experts is that the War on drugs is a huge failure, that damaged human society as a whole and needs to be stopped as fast as possible. We really try to be neutral in our videos but there are just no convincing pro arguments for the War on Drugs. Should we have stated that it provides jobs for prison guards? That the privat prison industry is benefiting greatly? That after all the damage it does only about 10-15% less people take drugs while they are illegal? There seems to be no upside worth the War on Drugs.
We really try to be as neutral as possible – we could have done a better job at this with the refugee and addiction video – both videos which core message we still support very much but in hindsight would have phrased a few things differently to not cause as much controversy. But for this one I don't see how we could have pretended that there is another side to the issue that is not totally broken. It would have felt very dishonest (and well, wrong) to pretend that the War on Drugs has upsides that may make it worth while.
We all know it, The problem remains is the ammount of money there is in maintaining the war on drugs.
