She stood up to the drug world, but the drug world will hijack this thread.
I imagine organized criminals were most affected by the repeal of prohibition. If we had not done so then, nearly 100 years later, the nation would be divided by alcohol cartels as violent as we see in Mexico today. Now, 40 years after Nixon launched the war on drugs, the new cartels are not on the losing side and the violence is spreading across the border. This isn’t an issue of morality. Certainly the Prohibitionists held the moral high ground. But at what cost to society?
“She stood up to the drug world, but the drug world will hijack this thread.”
Only a matter of time.
How many “legalize drugs” folks will does one run into who are not themselves drug users?
Not many, I reckon...
As far as the drug war in Mexico goes, we ought to treat the drug gangs as Mossad treats the enemies of Israel...
