On this episode, Matt Murphy, Vinny Marshall, Caitlin Cloven, and James Smith dive into the always failing war on drugs. We cover the libertarian position on the matter, the statist position, go over some recent news on the topic, and close out with our opinions.

Jeff Sessions, Colorado legal issues, occupation in Afghanistan and the opioid epidemic, and the constant issues caused between Mexico and the United states caused by the war on the drugs.

Here’s a video of Jeff Sessions saying “Good people don’t smoke marijuana”
