Drugs FAQ

Lady Liberty answers your questions.

What is the Libertarianz position on drug use?

Libertarianz would repeal laws prohibiting drug use. Each individual owns his own life; therefore he has the right to treat his body as he chooses.

But if drugs were legalised, wouldn’t crime increase with more addicts on the streets?

Prohibition leads to criminal involvement. The resultant black market inflates the price of drugs and attracts criminals. Police time is diverted from apprehending real criminals and is wasted on drug law enforcement. It is likely that drug-related crime would decrease following legalisation of drugs.
