Milton Friedman on bad laws

This is a great discussion by Milton Friedman about how bad laws make criminals out of those who seek to do things that are socially advantageous. He uses a great illustration about smugglers (and I imagine that he is talking about Han Solo and Chewbacca...okay, maybe not...)
