    Until recently, support for pot legalization was political suicide. It’s now become so mainstream even many republicans including Pat Robertson’s screaming Jesus crowd are on board.

    Prohibition is an awful flop,
    We like it.
    It can’t stop what it’s meant to stop,
    We like it.
    It’s filled our land with vice and crime,
    It’s left a trail of graft and slime,
    It don’t prohibit worth a dime,
    Nevertheless we’re for it.

    – that was Franklin P. Adams 1931 In reaction to recommendations of a panel of ‘experts’ concerning continued enforcement of the Volstead Act.

    The United States re-legalized certain drug use in 1933. The drug was alcohol. The 21st amendment re-legalized its production, distribution and sale. Alcohol consumption and violent crime dropped immediately as a result. And very soon after, the American economy climbed out of that same prohibition engendered abyss into which it had foolishly fallen.
