Fuck Yeah Drug Policy

Video Game Shows People Why Drug War Can’t be Stopped | ABC News

A new game app challenges you to “end the never-ending war.” It was designed to get people thinking about how hard it is to stop the drug trade.

In Narco Guerra, you are asked to act as Mexico’s Police Chief. You get money, weapons, and troops, and must decide how to deploy these limited resources around Mexico, as you try to rid different parts of the country of cartel activity. Certain actions, like taking down a cartel leader in one area of Mexico, also generate reactions like the emergence of new cartels. This gives users an idea of what the real drug war is like.

"The War on Drugs has been going on for more than 40 years now, and we wanted to explore why that is," said Tomas Rawlings, the game’s developer.

Check out the game’s trailer above.
