There is so much money involved in the drug laws that they will never be repealed. Think of the Police union jobs, the prison employee unions and their jobs. The lawyers with their employees. Ditto Rehab centers with their paper pushers, The list is virtually endless and they all make money out of the laws as written. Getting rid of bad laws is not going to happen.

You're wrong. There's so much money to be made by TAXING recreational drugs, that it's only a matter of time.

The entrenched will be too difficult to remove. There is more money to be made taxing all of us so we can be properly "protected" from the evils of life. Your local politician knows more than you do. Just follow directions.

In his column of March 12, 2013, my beloved friend wrote on the issue of legalized marijuana in the state of Colorado. On his radio show, he justifiably bemoaned readers of his column who had written comments questioning his sanity and their relationship over this one issue despite years of being Prager groupies. I will not do any of that. But for only the second time in our long relationship, Mr. Prager, you are dead wrong on a topic … but I still love you.
