More About Nick Gillespie
Gillespie and Welch answer the question: What does a libertarian think about the war on drugs and how do we change it?
Gillespie speaking at an SSDP conference on the topic of What Would a Sensible Drug Policy Look Like, and discussing how drug prohibition functions as a structuring event in American life, forcing all sorts of activity to pay hypocritical and misdirected lip service to a Just Say No mentality.
