  1. Fear the Pharmacology!!!

  2. That was meant to be,”Fear the Phramacology!!!” but my superior intellect wouldn’t let me misspell it.

  3. Cellulite ads, ugh. We need more stories about Russia!

  4. Brandybuck, perhaps if we mention Russian brides, some good ads might appear. I wonder if Russian brides are scared of phramacology.

    PS: Russian brides.

    Damn Sullum! Just post a fucking transcript.Do you think we are all made out of spare time?

    (And whole html tags?)

  7. Did I mention my new Russian Bride is into Voodoo?

  8. Hey reason.tv, you think next time you could choose an angle that would include the slides. Alternatively, edit in stills of the slides.

    Also: shots of Russian brides.

  9. Great lecture, but would’ve been better with the slides included.

  10. Huh. So that’s what Jacob Sullum looks like.

  11. No lecture is complete without PowerPoint

  12. blah…blah…blah…yada..yada..yada..

  13. What a stupid post. Soon the only people reading this shit will be five or six true believers and me. Fuck! Donate now!

  14. I’m having trouble bending down far enough to do my thing because of all my stress eating from having to defend everything the president does and why can’t they all just LEAVE HIM ALONE? I’M SERIOUS!!!!! LEAVE OBAMA ALONE!

  15. Sexy Russian Women.

  16. “What a stupid post. Soon the only people reading this shit will be five or six true believers and me. Fuck! Donate now!”

    Are you being self referential? Otherwise WTF are you posting about?

  17. it cuts off at the end!

    Excellent talk though!

  18. Minor nitpick, but a filmed presentation that includes a slide show should actually *show* what the heck it is that the speaker is gesticulating towards off-screen.

    Jacob Sullum is doing great work on the long-ignored (even among liberalization advocates) issue of how drug prohibition has twisted public perception and spread ignorance about the actual *effects* of these substances.
