williatw,

Yes. Of course. Except.... Prohibition is ending. And states can no longer afford the prisons or housing the people that used to fill them. We have already seen one wave of releases. There will be more.

Colorado is a harbinger. In Denver the murder rate is down 60%. Auto thefts are down by 1/3rd. Overall crime has dropped 10%. With state budgets strained other States are going to want to replicate that. Especially the tax money that will be generated. In Illinois there are already rumblings of legalization by legislation. I estimate they have 2/3rds of the vote required. And the legalizers are gaining ground.

So who will the SWAT teams target given the coming change.

Our Conservative friends have put a sword in the hands of their enemies. I predict it will not turn out well.
