I used to believe in the War on Drugs

by Rocket Finance

But the more I research the issue, the more I realize that the libertarians have it right. I support the legalization of many drugs that are now illegal, so long as legalization is accompanied by strong penalties for people who hurt others while under the influence of those drugs.

This goes against the policies enacted by one of my political heroes, Ronald Reagan. Intuitively, his “war on drugs” seemed to be the correct way to treat this issue, however, the last twenty-five years have proven that the government is ineffective in the struggle against drug use. Your brain on drugs will still look like a fried egg, but what you choose to put into your body is your business until it infringes on the rights of others.
