Argument: More people die from Drug War than overdosing

Issue Report: War on Drugs


William F Buckley Statement to New York Bar Association. July 1st, 1996: “more people die every year as a result of the war against drugs than die from what we call, generically, overdosing. These fatalities include, perhaps most prominently, drug merchants who compete for commercial territory, but include also people who are robbed and killed by those desperate for money to buy the drug to which they have become addicted.”
