Former Pres. Candidate Bob Barr Tries to End War on Drugs

| by Cato Institute

President Obama’s new drug czar, Gil Kerlikowske, says he wants to banish the idea of a “war on drugs” because the federal government should not be “at war with the people of this country.”

At a Cato policy briefing on Capitol Hill on July 7, former Libertarian Party presidential candidate Bob Barr explained why carrying out an end to the “war on drugs” will require a bipartisan solution.
