    Not all 1920s Prohibition profits went to thugs. My grandfather, a Long Island City restauranteur, made extra cash selling booze
    in teacups to judges from the courthouse across the street. He may have done a little time as a result, but the money helped put his sons through law and medical schools. That restaurant, which predates Prohibition, is still there with original fixtures over the bar!

    Parasitic Prohibitionists dance hand in hand with every possible type of criminal one can imagine—an unholy alliance of ignorance, greed and hate which works to destroy all our hard fought freedoms, wealth and security.

    We will always have adults who are too immature to responsibly deal with tobacco alcohol, heroin amphetamines, cocaine, various prescription drugs and even food. Our answer to them should always be: “Get a Nanny, and stop turning the government into one for the rest of us!”

    The only people that believe prohibition is working are the ones making a living by enforcing laws in its name, and those amassing huge fortunes on the black market profits. This situation is wholly unsustainable, and as history has shown us, conditions will continue to deteriorate until we finally, just like our forefathers, see sense and revert back to tried and tested methods of regulation. None of these substances, legal or illegal, are ever going to go away but we can decide to implement policies that do far more good than harm.

    During alcohol prohibition in the 1920s, all profits went to enrich thugs and criminals. Young men died every day on inner-city streets while battling over turf. A fortune was wasted on enforcement that could have gone on treatment. On top of the budget-busting prosecution and incarceration costs, billions in taxes were lost. Finally the economy collapsed. Sound familiar?

    So should the safety and freedom of the rest of us be compromised because of the few who cannot control themselves?

    Many of us no longer think it should!
