First, I want to thank Kane County Chief of the Specialty Courts Division, Melynda Benjamin, for coming on and being such a great co-host. She came up with some fascinating questions for our guest.
And that guest, of course, was none other than best-selling author Johann Hari who joined us all the way from London. If his book, “Chasing the Scream: The First and Last Days of the War on Drugs” doesn’t get folks to seriously reconsider that prohibition futility, than nothing will.
You can find his book right here and if you have an addict in your family, work in law enforcement, are part of the court system, or you simply want to understand why the war on drugs has failed so miserably, then please read it!
The Smiling Conservative will be back on Thursday when we’ll be talking about the Prevailing Wage Law, the fact that conservatives were wrong again – this time it was Illinois business startups, and why Republicans won’t be winning the White House in 2016 – and it has nothing to do with the actual candidates. Until then…
