You state that if drugs are re-legalized and regulated anytime soon,
it'd be a surprise.

You may be correct, but I believe the tide has turned and more people
are beginning to realize prohibition and the resulting black markets
are a much greater detriment to society than drugs themselves.

My hope is that by the time my five-year-old is in high school that
the drug dealers will be gone.

I may be overly optimistic, but we need the media's help to counter
all the prohibitionist propaganda that is spewed by those with a
vested interest in maintaining the status quo (like the police and
prison industry), so thank you for publishing another of Kirk Muse's
excellent letters.
