it was such a stupid thing when they passed prohibition as that really gave organized crime a huge source of income. it is why i'm so glad with the latest trend of legalizing MJ. let it happen and regulate/tax it - turn a crime into revenue, use the revenue to fund treatment and research and also to go for other things. get people out of prison who don't really belong there, free up criminal courts for actual crimes, etc. most important of all it stops giving money to organized criminals in other countries. we need to continue this process as you can see what happens in other countries.
