Al Capone would've been a small time Brooklyn hood, BUT, thanks to "I know what's best for you..." DEMOCRATS, he bought and ran Chicago, because of the Federal price supports that Prohibition provided.
It's a sad fact of life, that some people are gonna get stoned. Can't stop it, can't control it, can't convince 'em otherwise.
Prohibition has always been the Great Societal Cureall. If we just get rid of booze, guns, drugs, DDT, Alare, Carbon Dioxide, corporations, private income, then the whole world will be rainbows and unicorns with piles of Skittles every 20 feet...
The War on Drugs has trashed the Constitution, with the WoD being used to justify 90% of the legal violations. Search and seizure, RICO laws, confiscation of property, limits on how much cash you can possess, SWAT teams, thousands slaughtered by an out of control policing system. AND, we are LOSING!
Can you honestly justify ANY of this?
