Jeffrey Miron, an economics professor at Harvard University – on drug legalisation

Posted by Adrian on March 8, 2007

Great interview between Tom Keene (Bloomberg) and Jeffrey Miron an economics professor at Harvard Universty regarding drug legalisation. The costs of prohibition on the economy and the repercussion on a society that enforces illegality on drugs – which is the cause of most major crime, and even diseases like the spread of HIV, as clean needles are not available for pregnant mothers with HIV hence they become infected; and so does their new born babies. Compelling and intelligent. Very well thought out counter argument to the grossly outdated prohibition laws on so called illegal drugs.
