Thank you for the article in Sunday's Post and Courier about the Charleston 
Police Department's making drug busts in Santee, and for revealing the 
massive waste of police manpower and money and the questionable 
profiteering from these arrests and seizures.

Drug busts have been going on forever, yet we are faced with more drugs and 
drug users than ever before. Just substitute the word alcohol for drugs in 
this article and you'd think we were living in the Prohibition era of the 
1930s. Prohibition did not work then and it does not work now.
