In this article, the writer discusses the Libertarian perspective with regards to drug possession and use. The writer examines why that philosophy is responsible for the Libertarian support of decriminalizing drug possession and drug use. The writer also looks at the principle of non-initiative of force.
From the Paper:"Libertarian candidate for president John Hoskins drafted a Statement of Principles defining the Libertarian philosophy. That statement remains virtually the same today with the following expression most symbolizing the overall philosophy of the Libertarian party: 'We, the members of the Libertarian party challenge the cult of the omnipotent state and defend the rights of the individual'. The Libertarian philosophy is rooted in the ideas of the Enlightenment and thinkers like John Locke Voltaire and Adam Smith."
