Pro Legalization vs. Pro Drugs

If someone tells you that libertarians are pro drugs, tell whoever says as much that they don’t know what they are talking about. In fact, send them this link: It’s a Bloomberg interview of Harvard economics professor, Jefrey Miron, who explains a short and rational argument for legalization.

Even if you hate drugs for whatever reasons you have — family or otherwise — give this argument for legalization a listen. Legalization might actually solve some of the worst problems used to justify the War on Drugs That’s a war that has consumed tens of billions of dollars and many lives, yet our usage and abuse levels are worse than nations that treat use, abuse and addiction as a medical problem vs. a crime. Meanwhile, we incaerate thousands of people who are sucked into the black market that is a rehash of 1920s failed prohibition.
