Did she mention the costs to society of prohibition at all? The misdirection of police resources away from violent criminals? The release of violent criminals early to make room for drug users in prison? The drive by shootings of innocent bystanders due to drug trafficking? The death of 100,000 on our borders due to smuggling? The increase in property crime due to addicts having to pay black market prices for their "fix"? The increase in use that has occurred since prohibition began? The reduction in potential tax revenue from those with criminal records? The loss of ability to get an education for those with a record? There was no mention of "both" sides at all. Prohibitionists never like to discuss the costs of their ideas.
