Star blogger Radley Balko, lately of the Cato Institute, is now writing for Reason, where he is doing a weekly "Drug Propaganda Thursday."

Bob Barr, former arch-drug warrior in Congress, has joined the Libertarian Party and is working with them as a spokesman! We already had heard Barr's views on the drug issue had mellowed with political retirement, and of course he has been working on privacy issues with the ACLU. Has he actually jettisoned the drug war ideology completely now? We're not sure yet.

I hope Bob Barr will publically repudiate his previous hard line stand against medical marijuana. Although I didn't live in Georgia I contributed to those opposed to his re-election because of his callous indifference to the seriously ill who found some benefit from using marijuana. If he can't.... how can he call himself a Libertarian?
