Some politician will figure out there is a market for ending Prohibition and will sweep up those votes. It happened in 1932.

Rand Paul Decries Mandatory Minimum Sentences, Likens War On Drugs To Jim Crow

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/1 ... 49415.html


At a packed public hearing of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee on Wednesday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) compared the war on drugs to the racist policies of the Jim Crow era.

"If I told you that one out of three African-American males is forbidden by law from voting, you might think I was talking about Jim Crow 50 years ago," Paul said. "Yet today, a third of African-American males are still prevented from voting because of the war on drugs."

"The majority of illegal drug users and dealers nationwide are white," he said, "but three-fourths of all people in prison for drug offenses are African American or Latino."

Just finished the Ken Burns show on Prohibition. Very interesting, and many parallels to stuff today. Although I think some of the parallels were made on purpose.
