I was introduced to this book and this author through last week's Free Thoughts podcast, and after listening to it, I'm sold on the book. I'm going to buy it as soon as I get paid. I'll post the podcast here and let that stand as an ad for the book.

The stuff about Harry Anslinger (the grandfather of the War on Drugs) is fascinating and infuriating. He is one of the worst people to ever hold a government office and few people have single-handedly caused more pain, violence, and misery than him.
