The illegal drug trade is a job creator. Manufacturing, shipping, wholesale and retail sales of product and accessories. The illegal drug trade is too big to fail. If you can't build an economy that creates jobs for people to live on, get off the backs of people who can.
You live by majority rule, right? The majority of people are stupid, so majority rule means the stupid people rule. Majority rule also means the drug crowd rules your country. You can throw them all in jail, take away their right to vote because they are felons and that's too bad. The drug crowd is the de facto majority and will rule. No matter what you do. You have lost the war.
