In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I speak with Dr. Mark Thornton, Senior Fellow at the Ludwig von Mises Institute, about the economics of the War on Drugs. We discuss how the drug war is a an example of the difference between a mainstream approach to an issue, and an Austrian or free market approach. We also go into some common objections to drug legalization, and some of the lessons we can learn about prohibition from shows like “Breaking Bad” and “The Wire”.
Plus, I explains how you can win a free copy of “Meet Ron Paul” – the Ron Paul biography for youth
