The show will be from 3pm to 4pm on the 23rd of August 2015 at St Andrew Square.
The Cabaret of Dangerous Ideas is a debate, discussion and discourse, designed as an informal platform for academics and researchers to engage with the public on an array of topics.

The cocaine trade has enormous social and ecological consequences on both global and local scales. The production of cocaine involves large scale deforestation and pollution as a result of the discarding of the reagents used to process from leaf to final product. Western governments have been pursuing the so-called war on drugs for many years at a cost of billions of dollars. But how successful has this approach been? Is a hard line approach the only solution? In this forum we will discuss this and alternative approaches to tackling the problem.
The event discussion will expose personal opinions and will not reflect RBGE views.
