Drugs in society and society on drugs

Third Wednesday of each month from 6:30 pm to 7:00 pm

Free Culture Radio is an examination of drugs, drug cultures, and the ineluctable, indelible, and indispensable influence of drugs on society. Free Culture Radio neither promotes the use of any drugs, nor condemns people for being involved in drugs. To the extent that drug use presents problems for individuals or society, those problems are made worse and more intractable when drug users are treated as “others” and ignored, stigmatized, and even brutalized.
