Johann Hari: How can America's 'War on Drugs' succeed if their Prohibition laws failed?

Read entire article HERE.

" Their most famous achievement - the criminalisation of alcohol in the United States between 1921 and 1933 - is one of the great parables of modern history. Daniel Okrent's superb new history, 'Last Call: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition', shows how a coalition of mostly well-meaning, big-hearted people came together and changed the Constitution to ban booze. On the day it began, one of the movement's leaders, the former baseball hero turned evangelical preacher Billy Sunday, told his ecstatic congregation what the Dry New World would look like: "The reign of tears is over. The slums will soon be only a memory. We will turn our prisons into factories and our jails into storehouses. Men will walk upright now, women will smile, and the children will laugh. Hell will be forever rent.""
Note: Now that the money has run out the mainstream will begin to consider that the entire fake "war on drugs" gravy train for law enforcement, lawyers, private jails and courts - is really nothing but a scam to enrich the high priests of morality, finger-pointing hypocritical sanctimonious ones in uniform, and other piss-in-a-cup phonies who would lock up their own mother for a buck or a brownie point with their boss.

It is time for the war on drugs to stop - and has been for awhile. But now that the money is gone - the ethical considerations that should have ended it long ago no longer matter - there's just no more money to give to cops, judges, and lawyers to waste.

Soon to follow: The end of the war on horror/terror.
