Silk Road: A Microcosm of How the War on Drugs is Destroying America

In this interview with Lynn Ulbricht, mother of Ross Ulbricht convicted of running Silk Road, we discuss new developments that many believe should overturn the conviction. To get a conviction, the judge hid from jurors the fact that prosecutors were investigating their own agents for theft and falsifying government documents. The Silk Road case is a perfect illustration of how the War on Drugs has eviscerated our rights, turned our legal system into a kangaroo court and corrupted law enforcement. The case also has the potential to establish dangerous precedents that would affect all Americans if allowed to stand.
