Colbert Gets "Doped Up" to Interview Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance

In the clip to your right, Colbert (claiming to be doped up on cold medicine) conducts a hilarious interview with drug legalization advocate Ethan Nadelmann of the Drug Policy Alliance. Colbert does his usual, ignorant pompous conservative bit, but Nadelmann does get the opportunity to eloquently and accurately slam the War on Drugs:

The drug war's built on a myth that was can create a drug free society. But there has never been a drug free society in human history.
Nice Nadelmann. Say what you will about Colbert's style, but he certainly provides a forum for voices you almost never get to hear in mainstream media. Check out the video to your right for more.
