Lewis Rice fails to answer the most basic questions in his inane
defense of a failed drug-prohibition policy.

How can any sane person believe that a drug ban can possibly work
after seeing the catastrophic results of an utterly failed alcohol
prohibition scheme in the 1920s and '30s?

What Agent Rice argues for is a futile "forever war" that insures
permanent full employment for drug warriors.

What other reason can there be for wasting billions of dollars on an
utterly futile drug prohibition policy that has never worked for
anything, anywhere, anytime?

Repeal and regulation ended the reign of the bootleggers and stopped
the bloodshed over alcohol distribution. Repeal and regulation will do
the same for our failed drug-prohibition policies.
