BLURBS #"Jacob Sullum has produced a thoughtful, sane, and logical analysis of our drug laws. Is that even legal?"
-- Dave Barry, syndicated columnist and novelist
"Sullum pits the truth against the lies of the drug prohibitionists."
-- Thomas Szasz, professor emeritus of psychiatry, SUNY Upstate Medical University
"Jacob Sullum shows that drug use is far from an all-or-nothing phenomenon and that all use is not abuse. He puts the erroneous claims of prohibitionists into historical perspective"
-- Mark Stepnoski, former Dallas Cowboy
"Saying Yes is a powerful refutation of the pharmacological prejudices underlying the war on drugs. Jacob Sullum highlights the injustice of punishing people for their politically incorrect choice of intoxicants."
-- Nadine Strossen, president of the American Civil Liberties Union; professor of law, New York Law School
"I've never used a recreational drug (or even had a sip of alcohol) in my life, but Jacob Sullum makes a great case to stop the drug wars. He exposes the tricks of the drug warriors who scam the crowd with huckster patter about magical substances that force people to do evil."
-- Penn Jillette, the taller, louder half of Penn and Teller
