OH sure, just shut that market down ha ha ha.... creativegirl, how long have drugs been illegal in this country? Does it appear anyone is having trouble getting them? What happened when they tried to outlaw booze. Heck, they even amended the Constitution for that one.... and then had to change it back when they realized that prohibition was an absolute failure. No Maam your little BS laws written on a piece of paper rarely stop anyone from doing what they really want to do. When you make something illegal the market just moves to the back alley or the back room and becomes much more dangerous. I sure wish you libs would stop trying the same things over and over and expecting a different result. A man named Einstein defined that as insanity
There is no question that liberals do an impressive job of expressing concern for blacks. But do the intentions expressed in their words match the actual consequences of their deeds?

San Francisco is a classic example of a city unexcelled in its liberalism. But the black population of San Francisco today is less than half of what it was back in 1970, even though the city's total population has grown.

Severe restrictions on building housing in San Francisco have driven rents and home prices so high that blacks and other people with low or moderate incomes have been driven out of the city....
