Press PLAY to meet Jonah Engle and learn about his writing.
Jonah uses Beacon to untangle the complicated issues of drug policy.
He regularly travels to communities from Appalachia to Colombia to look at how government laws affects the lives of individuals on the ground, an important lens into a hot-button issue. You’ll read stories that reveal how the sentiment about the “War on Drugs” has changed for better or for worse.
Why should I subscribe to you?
A lot of reporting on drugs is sensationalistic, generating more heat than light. My work strives to go beyond the clichés of so many drug stories to examine the social, public health, and economic consequences of the way we consume and regulate drugs.
What do you cover?
Drugs – everything from the “growing” marijuana industry, to the public health implications of the huge increase in opioid prescriptions in America, to the business of the War on Drugs.
