Episode 48: Prohibitionists exist in both political tribes

Free to Offend Episode 48 | Guest: Steven Greenhut, western regional director for R Street Institute

Prohibitionists, cultural scolds and Nannycrats exist in both major political tribes—and it’s making us a significantly less-free society as a result.

Steven Greenhut, western regional director for R Street Institute, joined the program to discuss the way legalized marijuana has been one of the great examples of where both conservatives and progressives tend to get things wrong. As we explore the topic, it becomes obvious that the populist fringes on both extremes often prioritize their political preferences over the underlying principles of individual freedom or personal autonomy… much to the detriment of “we the people.”
