Capitol Hill Briefing
August 31, 2007 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM EDT

B-354 Rayburn House Office Building

With comments by Timothy Lynch, Director, Project on Criminal Justice, Cato Institute.

Drugs are bad, but is the War on Drugs even worse? John Stossel explores that question by interviewing some of the individuals closest to the drug war including police officers, judges, drug dealers, and South American farmers. Stossel also examines how liberalized drug laws in Europe have affected crime, drug addiction, and civil liberties.
