The Drug War

Make no mistake. I hate John Tierney. However, despite my less than libertarian views on stifling immigration and opposition to abortion, most of my social views fall along the party line. Among them is my belief in the legalization of illicit drugs, which Tierney has written a column about in the NY Times.

It’s not only the right thing to do in terms of restoring rights but also the pragmatic solution to a problem, the use of illicit drugs, which has grown only worse since the declaration of the ‘war’ on drugs.
