The Case for Ending Drug Prohibition: Andrew Bernstein in Toronto

Thursday JUNE 25, 2015

Location: Room 116 – Wallberg Memorial Building
200 College Street, University of Toronto
Admission: Free. A donation at the door ($10 suggested) will be gratefully accepted, however.

The legal-political war on drugs is an abysmal failure: It violates the right of adults to legally buy, sell, or consume any substance(s) they choose, while failing—for necessary and predictable reasons—to control drug trafficking. Legalizing drugs both protects the right of adult citizens in a free society to legally choose which substances they will or will not ingest and, with the failed anti-drug war repudiated, leaves open the possibility of a vastly more effective effort: A moral-philosophic-educational campaign, exhorting each individual to recognize both that his life belongs to him—and the healthy, value-laden, joy-inducing possibilities his life holds out for him. The legalization of drugs is an integral aspect of an intensified, significantly more effective war on drugs.
