Research Fellow Randall Holcombe appears on the Larry Conners USA Radio Show
Recorded: Thursday, November 12, 2015

Research Fellow Randall Holcombe is a guest on the Larry Conners USA Radio Show on KTRS St. Louis. Holcombe discusses President Obama’s push for shorter prison sentences and why the move is a mistake. The war on drugs has been waged for 35 years. Drugs are impossible to control and their use should not be illegal, according to Holcombe. Transactions among consenting adults shouldn’t be prosecuted, he says. Only if property crimes or violence occurs, should drug users be prosecuted. Nov. 12, 2015
