The Cato Institute vs. The Heritage Foundation debate, held Wednesday night, is an annual sparring of two well-known think tanks where interns debate the principles of Libertarianism and Conservatism.
The debate was moderated by Senior Political Columnist for The Washington Examiner, Tim Carney. Carney said that Conservatives and Libertarians might have a similar philosophical identity, but noted that there are deep divides, too.
The two sides debated on a number of issues, but none were more heated or contested than the “legalization of all drugs.”
