Peter Wehner: GOP Should Take a Stand Against Drug Legalization

Former director of the White House Office of Strategic Initiatives makes the usual arguments


Some say that the Republican Party needs to find new issues to champion if it hopes to become America's majority party. There is something to this. But being a conservative party, the GOP should also look to the past, where wisdom often resides.

In that spirit, Republicans once again should take a strong stand against drug use and legalization. Virtually no lawmaker in either party is doing so.
