When you remove social restraints, you get chaos.

In this episode, two former DEA agents reunite to discuss the implications of government support on motivation, disparities in education, and the role of law enforcement. They unpack harsh realities of modern day drug smuggling, as well as the impact of immigration policies on the job market, the rise of fentanyl overdoses, and the conflicting messages about drug use. Needless to say, these seasoned law enforcement agents unwind the complicated intersection of immigration, drug policy, and modern American culture with its evolving societal values.


Join us as we discuss:

  • The conflicting messages surrounding drug use, from the "drugs are bad" narrative to the movement for drug decriminalization in progressive cities
  • Societal implications of dependency on government support, questioning whether it encourages or hinders motivation to achieve personal success
  • The role of law enforcement amidst the larger debate about the direction America is heading, from democracy to social policies
