Christopher Hitchens

Author and journalist

"I think the decriminalisation of drugs is long, long overdue. It will be looked back on, when it is done, as ‘What was all that about? How did we let Richard Nixon declare a war on drugs, ruin so much of our society, throw away so many of our liberties [and] incarcerate so many innocent people? … How did we ever let this prohibition go as far as it has gone?'"
