Documentary: 60 Min. Interviews US “Drug Czar” And The Story Of Ali

60 Minutes (Aired June 6, 2016) CBS News.

Part One: After 40 years and a trillion dollars, the nation has little to show for its war on drugs.

In a revealing interview with CBS News anchor Scott Pelley, the nation’s top official in charge of fighting the war on drugs focused his arsenal not on cartels and abusers as much as on attitudes and language.

Michal Botticelli was confirmed by the U.S. Senate in February, and as the out director of National Drug Policy closes in on his first year on the job, he told 60 Minutes, don’t call him “the drug czar.

I think it connotes this old ‘war on drugs’ focus to the work that we do. It portrays that we are clinging to kind of failed policies and failed practices in the past.

Pelley asked Botticelli if he meant to say the “war and drugs” approach of the past four decades was all wrong.

In their interview, Botticelli admits he’s “not a fan” of the legalization of marijuana and talked at length about changing the language of addiction, in much the same way the marriage equality movement changed attitudes towards gays and lesbians by focusing on love. [01]

Sorry folks, I have removed this video to make space on my server for new videos. We have a wide variety of films to watch in the Video section.

Part Two: This most famous of all heavyweight champions who ever lived has come to terms with the Parkinson’s syndrome that doctors say came from his years in the ring and by all rights should have laid him low, and probably would have if he weren’t Muhammad Ali.

Muhammad Ali, former boxing heavyweight champion, has died at age seventy-four. In 1996, correspondent Ed Bradley profiled Ali, and the piece became a classic — in part because of Ali’s spirit, story, and struggle, and in part because of the prank that Ali played on Ed.
