“But rather than focus on mistaken arguments common to drug prohibitionists, I want to address a relatively novel claim: ‘Many people cite the ‘costs’ of and ‘socioeconomic factors’ behind drug use; rarely do people say that drug use is wrong because it is morally problematic, because of what it can do to mind and soul,’ Wehner writes. ‘In some liberal and libertarian circles, the ‘language of morality’ is ridiculed. It is considered unenlightened, benighted and simplistic. The role of the state is to maximize individual liberty and be indifferent to human character.'”

Huh.
