For today’s chat, I speak with Akiva about his new article in which he makes the case for legalizing all drugs. We discuss two different common justifications for legalization; one from a point of harm reduction and the other from a point of bodily autonomy. We also talk about potential difficulties and concerns on the path to legalization.
Akiva Malamet is a writer and graduate student in philosophy at Queen’s University. He is a new contributing writer to The Catalyst and has also published work with Libertarianism.org, Liberal Currents, and others.
Akiva’s article, “It’s Time to Legalize Drugs: All of Them” can be found here.
