He shares stories about friends and families being kidnapped and murdered by drug cartels. He shares statistics about how many men, women, law enforcement officers, and children will be killed during his short speech.

Berlanga proceeds to discuss the hypocrisy of people who buy sweatshop-free clothing, wear conflict-free diamonds, and eat vegetarian or vegan foods... only to use illegal drugs.
Because the impact you will have on human lives by using illegal drugs is infinitely larger than the one you will have by choosing conflict-free diamonds.
