Correcting the Myths & Economics of Drug Legalization (Pt.2)| Jo Jorgensen | POLITICS | Rubin Report

Dave Rubin of The Rubin Report talks to Jo Jorgensen (Presidential Candidate, Libertarian Party) about why Trump is not the outsider he pretends to be, the myths of the war on drugs, and why the libertarian party has taken the place of the Democratic Party for anti war voters. Jo debunks many of the myths surrounding the drug war. She points out how the prohibition of most drugs has only increased crime and made the drugs themselves more dangerous. She compares the current war on drugs to prohibition of alcohol which increased the incentives for people to make their own and sometimes deadly black market alcohol. Jo makes the point that despite being more addictive there is no black market for tobacco and alcohol due to the fact that there is a free market for these substances.
