Dallas Morning News – Published LTE: PROHIBITION FAILS AGAIN

 Re: “No end in sight in Mexico cartel war — Turf battle in Juarez may take years to play out, authorities say,” Monday news story.

During my 18 years as a police officer, I saw drugs become cheaper, stronger and readily available to our youth.  My profession went from “protect and serve” to “search and arrest” those who chose marijuana instead of alcohol.  Public safety took a back seat to making a drug arrest on all the Willie Nelsons of the world.

This sobering report on the agony of Mexico should wake up those citizens who cling to the idea that this modern prohibition will one day become effective.  Prohibition has failed, again.  Solution? Same as 1933 — repeal and then legalize, regulate, tax.
