I <3 Bill O’Reilly: Drugs in the No-Spin Zone

November 1, 2007

In case you want to watch something more substantive than a cat playing piano or a guy screaming loudly, check out this video on why drugs should be legalized. It’s interesting for several reasons: one, it’s on the O’Reilly Factor, so you know it’ll be entertaining! Two, the guest is author Jacob Sullum, who wrote the book Saying Yes: In Defense of Drug Use, and who I wrote about several times on this blog here, here, and here. This guys not only talks smack, but probably uses it!

A tough issue, sure. But a lot of things in life are tough issues. That usually just means we should think about them. And not jump to conclusions based on anecdotal evidence.

And of course, I don’t have too great an experience with drugs. But that doesn’t mean I can’t defend [most] of them. When used responsibly. [Thanks stupid French woman in Denmark that used magic mushrooms and jumped to her death! Now I’ll never get to use them legally…]

And now I’ll get off my high horse.

Happy All Saints Day!
