U.S. Drug War is Destroying Mexico

Scott Horton interviews Will Grigg.

Will Grigg, blogger and author of Liberty in Eclipse, discusses Rep. Michael McCaul’s (R-Texas) attempt to include Mexican drug cartels in an expanded war on terrorism; the winners on both sides of prohibition, including the cartels that profit from a huge risk premium and the drug and law enforcement agencies that get increased funding and employment; the Washington Post op-ed chiding Mexico for being too proud to “call in the marines;” and how Texas compensates for budget shortfalls: ramp up “asset forfeitures” near borders, where the Fourth Amendment’s protection against unlawful search and seizure apparently doesn’t apply.

MP3 here. (20:11)

Will Grigg writes the blog Pro Libertate and is the author of Liberty in Eclipse.
