How should we differentiate between morality and legality? Does the effectiveness of a law matter or is it purely an expression of desired values? Is there any merit to harm-reduction theory or decriminalization?

We strived to present this discussion in an unbiased way recognizing that it is a highly controversial topic. Every aspect from the title to the description to how we edited the conversation was done with meticulous care. It is by-far the most difficult episode we have so far undertaken, and like all episodes of Alpha-Bytes we remind you that although we research our topics, we are not experts in any sense of the word, nor are we attempting to persuade our listeners to agree or disagree with any given perspective, rather we discuss different views to broaden our own worldviews by understanding those other than ours.
