Still think prohibition is a good idea?

Posted by

Anybody who still thinks drug prohibition is a good idea is either profiting from it or is simply mentally deficient.

If you support prohibition then you’ve helped trigger the worst crime wave in this nation’s history.

If you support prohibition you’ve a helped create a black market with massive incentives to hook both adults and children alike.

If you support prohibition you’ve helped to make these dangerous substances available in schools and prisons.

If you support prohibition you’ve helped raise gang warfare to a level not seen in this country since the days of alcohol bootlegging.

If you support prohibition you’ve helped remove many important civil liberties from those citizens you falsely claim to represent.

If you support prohibition you’ve helped put previously unknown and contaminated drugs on the streets.

If you support prohibition you’ve helped to escalate Theft, Muggings and Burglaries.

If you support prohibition you’ve helped to divert scarce law-enforcement resources away from protecting your fellow citizens from the ever escalating violence against their person or property.

If you support prohibition you’ve helped overcrowd the courts and prisons, thus making it increasingly impossible to curtail the people who are hurting and terrorizing others.

At least someone has the guts to tell it like it is. It's astonishing we didn't learn from the prohibition on alcohol. Wasn't that a tremendous success. Thugs like Al Capone would have never risen to such prominence without it -- he would have remained a 2-bit hood running back room gambling and prostitution rings...and that reminds me...

...the state has already basically legalized gambling, why not prostitution?

The cats (drugs, prostitution, gambling) are already out of the bag and have been for decades. Bully-pulpit preaching about the morality of it all isn't going to get the cats to jump back in, so live with it. Humans are humans, and some need drugs, sex and gambling to feel good. Is any of it right? Probably not, but it's REALITY. They are never going away, so why not make some money and create jobs from them, instead of leaving all the dough for the violent street gangs and terrorists (remember, al-Queda and other terrorist groups make millions on drug trafficing, especially heroin).

You know, I've always thought it would be a good idea to legalize most drugs and prostitution. Think about it.....trillions of taxable dollars being ignored by our governmment. We could conceivably rid this country of all deficits by legalizing and then taxing these vices. What a windfall! Not to mention some of the medical requirements we would implement on the prostitutes to help control STDs. Seems like a no-brainer to me...
