Liberty Quotations: P.J. O’Rourke on Drug Prohibition

Quote Posted on Updated on

PJ O'Rourke“We won’t dispassionately investigate or rationally debate which drugs do what damage and whether or how much of that damage is the result of criminalization.  We’d rather work ourselves into a screaming fit of puritanism and then go home and take a pill.”

P.J. O’Rourke, Parliament of Whores [1991]
