Marijuana Legalization Countrywide in Canada, then Mexico, then the United States


A year ago this month, countrywide marijuana legalization was implemented in Canada. Also a year ago this month, the transition team of then-President-elect and current President of Mexico Andrés Manuel López Obrador announced marijuana legalization discussion was on the agenda of a trip to Canada by high-level Obrador administration members. Now, a year later, it looks like the Mexico national legislature is prepared to approve countrywide marijuana legalization soon, maybe even this month.

Donald Trump, ‘Isolationist’


On Tuesday, I wrote about Bill Weld, who is running for president in the Republican primary, criticizing President Donald Trump for causing the United States to “retreat into isolationism,” with “isolationism” being used as a substitute for a foreign policy of nonintervention. Weld is not the only politician recently making this bizarre accusation about Trump. It appears from reporting by Washington Post columnist Josh Rogin that this week former United States President George W. Bush did so as well.

Bill Weld, Champion of Foreign Intervention


Ron Paul, who had been the 1988 presidential nominee of the Libertarian Party, spent much time in his 2008 and 2012 Republican primary presidential runs criticizing US intervention overseas and promoting following a noninterventionist foreign policy. Some people might expect Bill Weld would do the same thing in his current Republican primary challenge to President Donald Trump. Weld was, after all, the 2016 Libertarian nominee for vice president. However, as Weld made crystal-clear in his October 8 editorial at Foreign Affairs, Weld aspires to oversee as president a foreign policy that is solidly interventionist.

Libertarians for the Drug War?


Kyle Jaeger, in a Marijuana Moment article last week discussing answers to a drug war question from a March Cato Institute poll, suggests that a substantial percentage of libertarians, even higher than among liberals, support continuing the drug war. Yet, when you look at the poll question at issue, a much different alternative interpretation becomes evident.

How About Donald Trump Hires Tulsi Gabbard, Rand Paul, and Daniel McAdams?


In a Sunday Target Liberty editorial, Robert Wenzel provides some advice for President Donald Trump, who Wenzel relates has decided to “surround himself with warmongers” in executive department positions despite Trump seeming to want to move foreign policy in a different direction. Trump would have been wise, writes Wenzel, to choose different people for Trump administration personnel, including hiring Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI), Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), and Ron Paul Institute Executive Director Daniel McAdams for important foreign policy-related positions

“So You Write Propaganda, Right?”: Journalist Files Complaint Against Customs and Border Protection


There has been a disturbing trend of complaints from journalists who allege that they were harassed entering the country by CBP officers about their coverage of President Donald Trump and related issues. The latest complaint is particularly egregious if true. Journalist Ben Wilson says that he was forced to admit that he “writes propaganda” to gain entry back into the country. The encounter, which is presumably on tape, is chilling in its lack of professionalism and abuse.
