Julian Buchanan has worked in the area of drug policy reform and education for decades. Initially a social worker/probation officer, he eventually become an academic.
During the course of his teaching career, Buchanan worked at Liverpool University, University of Central Lancashire, Glyndwr University, and Victoria University of Wellington.
He was a Consultant and Independent Expert for the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
We discuss, among other things, the roots of prohibition, how policies are changing, and the role of factors like race and fear in prohibition.

The Drug Classroom (TDC) is dedicated to providing the type of drug education everyone should have. Drugs are never going to leave our society and there has never been a society free from drugs.
Therefore, it only makes sense to provide real education free from propaganda.
TDC doesn’t advocate drug use. Rather, we operate with the intention of reducing the harm some substances can bring.
