Guns and dope links [UPDATED]
Violent crime has fallen in Colorado and Washington, even as marijuana use has risen. For context, see first link.
In the spirit of Robert Anton Wilson's Guns and Dope Party, some links:
Good Twitter threat on the new Alex Berenson 'Reefer Madness' book.
UPDATE: German Lopez at Vox -- hardly a libertarian -- weighs in. I'm going to read the book he recommends.
Marijuana legalization is more effective in reducing drug smuggling than a border wall. (Cato Institute).
Canada is dealing with a marijuana shortage. In a rational world -- not the one we live in obviously -- Oregon could deal with its surplus by exporting to Canada.
Expanding background checks for guns will do little to aid public safety. (Jacob Sullum).
A couple of links with no guns or dope:
John Higgs fan shirts are a thing.
Review of the new Adam Gorightly UFO book.
