If organized crime were asked for a wish list, the present heroin
distribution system would be on it. Resembling a self-replicating computer
virus, the system forces each addict to introduce more users to the system,
and a perfect feedback loop guaranteed to generate profits.

Along for the ride are the AIDS and hepatitis viruses, also guaranteed
longevity by the same feedback loop. Prohibition is killing your children.

There is a reason that politicians won't listen. There must be great concern
at the top of the power structure over the results of inquiries that will
certainly be made in earnest when prohibition has finally collapsed.

Once the tide has turned and the public begins to realize what an atrocity
has been perpetrated, motivation for such inquiry will be very strong, and
heads will roll. One day, politicians will be held accountable for the
killing fields they created.
