David Boaz on Ending Drug Prohibition

David Boaz is the executive vice president of the Cato Institute and the author of Libertarianism: A Primer (1997). Here he speaks at the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws’ (NORML’s) National Convention in 2000 on the failure of drug prohibition in America and more broadly about why enumerating and thus limiting the powers of the federal government is so important generally.
