I tend to agree with her point about drug legalization in a welfare state. The fact is that if recreational drugs (I'm not talking just pot, but more potent substances like coke, heroin and meth) are legally available, you're going to see a rise in addiction and the need for rehab and medical care. And with Obamacare "coming down the pike," as she puts it, the costs for helping people out of a self-inflicted addiction will frequently fall on the public trough, again, adding to an already overburdened state.
This is my big issue with pure libertarianism as a political and cultural norm. While I support a whole lot of libertarian theories in regards to liberty, the problem is that the concept also requires that a society be able to take responsibility...personal responsibility...for their actions. Right now, with the nanny state that continues to grow around us daily, that simply isn't possible.
And that's a freaking shame.
