Reason’s forthcoming movie on the horror that is the
war on drugs war on people who peacefully use intoxicants that influential busybodies disapprove of will be great. (HT Mark Perry)
UPDATE: Here’s a related post from 2011 – with a link to a Freeman column of mine, from years ago, entitled “Break this Vile Addiction.” Anyone who supports the so-called ‘war on drugs’ unavoidably (if unawares) also supports gestapo-like police tactics that are a natural consequence of government waging such a war.
Are the horrors unleashed by drug warriors – not only on actual and potential users of substances declared legislatively to be ‘unlawful,’ but also on innocent men, women, and children – conceivably outweighed by whatever benefits this war might bestow?
