Andrew NapolitanoFox Is Not Exactly The Most Drug Reform Friendly Station

By Morgan Fox

Yesterday was a sad day for drug policy in the mainstream media. Early in the afternoon, executives at Fox Business Network announced that they were dropping “Freedom Watch with Judge Napolitano” in favor of … reruns.

Those of you who are familiar with the show know all about host Judge Andrew Napolitano and his pointed attacks on anything threatening to liberty. What you may not know is that he was also a vocal critic of the war on drugs. His show was one of the few that would give airtime to spokespeople for organizations working to end prohibition, and he treated them fairly and with respect. Judge Napolitano frequently speaks out about the militarization of the police that has come about as a result of the war on drugs, particularly on marijuana.

So as a way to say “thanks” to Judge Napolitano for standing up for freedom, I am posting clips of the times he was nice enough to have us on his show. We at MPP can’t wait to see what the Judge will be up to next.

    Fox New has made a very big mistake – first Glenn Beck and now Judge Andrew Napolitano. You have shown your hand for you are really controlled
    by others who don’t want the truth to be known.

    THIS WILL COME BACK TO BITE YOU AND BITE YOU HARD. YOU GUYS HAVE MADE A VERY BIG MISTAKE.

    GOD B LESS YOU AND MAY GOD HELP YOU FOR YOU WILL NEED IT. THE TRUTH WILL COME OUT IF NOT ON FOX SOME OTHER FORM OF MEDIA LIKE THE INTERNET. THAT IS WHERE WE GET ALL OF OUR NEWS NO THAT THE JUDGE WILL BE GONE.

    Cannabis prohibition is based on greed and hate.

    The young girl parroting reefer madness arguments, had that holier than thou look in her eye, the look that only comes from religious indoctrination.

    Freedom Watch was the only show on Fox that I recorded and actually didn’t find myself disagreeing with… sometimes Stossel

    I agree with krypto man. Freedom Watch was the only show on Fox I could watch without screaming at my television every 3 minutes. Despite many attempts I can’t stand O’Reilly for more than a discussion’s worth. It’s obvious the Judge doesn’t fit in with the rest of Fox programming, he’s too tied up in the special interests OF THE PEOPLE.

    What a shame. Good luck to Andrew Napolitano with the rest of his career, whether he stays on tv or not.
