This Is Your Boyfriend On Drugs


The fundamental assumption made by many pro-drug legalization advocates is that people are rational actors who can weight their interests on their own without the aid or hindrance of government or community. Admittedly, not all advocates of legalization make this assumption, but even they have a rosy optimism about what cheaper, more reliable access to more potent drugs would do to society (I include some NR editors here). It’s a rich argument. But whenever I read stories like this , I become even more unconvinced they’re right.
