Cato: Ballot Measures Legalize (Some) Freedom

This year’s election cycle has set about some pretty major changes within the United States. In fact, this year will mark a giant jump forward for both progressives and libertarians in the long battle to end the failed war on drugs. Several states have voted to follow in Colorado’s footsteps, legalizing and decriminalizing cannabis along with many other substances. With so much in the current news cycle, this major success has undoubtedly been overshadowed and it’s understandable if you missed it. If you want all the details, watch this episode of the Cato Daily Podcast hosted by Caleb O. Brown.
