COI_Logo

On Conflicts of Interest #36, Kyle is joined by the great Mike Maharrey from the Tenth Amendment Center to talk about the president's war powers.

Including one state that even legalized heroin. Mike gives an update on Defend the Guard bills getting introduced in state legislatures. The bill would limit the use of the National Guard in undeclared wars. Mike Maharrey is the author of multiple books and hosts several...

Cops Frame Dozens of Innocent People With Fake Heroin

In Raleigh, NC. Oh well though that's just "collateral damage" in the great drug war right folks? Like my friend's sister who they killed with an "experimental" new pain killer since her doctors were afraid of what the federal cops might do if they found out he was giving her what she needed. How dare any of you people not hate government as much as I do? What the hell is wrong with you anyway?

Background Checks Lead to Gun Confiscation in California

Close Up Photography Of Brass Bullets 53224

Since last July 1, California has required background checks for those purchasing firearm ammunition. As we noted, by December 2019 the state had run 345,000 background checks and rejected 62,000 Californians legally entitled to purchase ammunition, including off-duty sheriff’s deputies purchasing shotgun shells to hunt ducks. Officials blamed glitches in the system, but for Ari Freilich of the Giffords Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence, the system was working as intended, as a “red flag” law allowing seizure of weapons from those who have committed no crime. As it turns out, Freilich...

Choose Your Associations Wisely

Mama said, “People will judge you by those you associate with!” Yes, it sounds like something out of a movie, but my mother did promote that idea. Dad too. Of course, it didn’t matter. I was going to spend time with who I wanted to because I can make my own decisions and old people need to leave me alone. As I progressed to my early twenties I had a dream; I wanted to be a rock star. I learned to play guitar, took singing lessons, grew my hair out (that was key!) and set out to find people to start a band with. I went through many auditions. I would play with a few people for a couple of...

10/31/17 Mark Thornton explains why ending heroin prohibition will solve America’s opiate crisis

Mark Thornton returns to the show to discuss his latest articles for the Mises Institute "The Real Cause of America's Opioid Epidemic" and "Big Pharma Makes Drugs that Please Regulators, Not Customers." Thornton makes the case for why legalizing heroin—and all drugs—would be a major step towards solving the opioid crisis. Instead, because of FDA regulations, doctors and pharmaceutical companies are not held liable for the awful consequences of their use. According to Thornton, and counter to popular opinion, lack of government regulations is what will actually regulate the quality of the...

Drug Overdose Deaths, 2016: Casualties of War

Drug overdose is now the leading cause of death among Americans under 50, the New York Times‘s Josh Katz reports. In 2016, overdoses claimed somewhere between 59,000 and 65,000 lives. That’s more American lives than were lost in the Vietnam war. It’s 20 times the casualty count of 9/11. It’s half again as many deaths as attributed to the “gun violence” we hear so much about in its peak year, 1994. Katz pins the blame  for these deaths on use, abuse, and sometimes accidental overdose of heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioid painkillers. He goes along with the current fad of calling the...

Reverse Gateway Drug: Opioid Deaths Plummeting in States with Legal Weed

This article originally appeared at Anti-Media.   As Attorney General Jeff Sessions continues to lament what he views as a blight on society, a new study is showing that states with medical marijuana programs are seeing drastic reductions in opioid-related hospitalizations and overdoses. From a Reuters article published Tuesday: “In states that legalized medical marijuana, U.S. hospitals failed to see a predicted influx of pot smokers, but in an unexpected twist, they treated far fewer opioid users, a new study shows. “Hospitalization rates for opioid painkiller dependence and abuse...
