It's not just like prohibition. Prohibition was put in place to criminalize an activity that a majority of citizens were doing, which was legal up to that point. The push to legalize drug use is putting a policy in place to condone an activity that a minority of citizens are doing, which heretofore was illegal.

As our focus continues to be on the violence in the Middle East, it is also important to pay attention to what is going on just south of our own border in Mexico. The war between the Mexican government and drug cartels is still raging with the war's latest victim being female Mayor Maria Santos Gorrostieta, who was beaten, burned, tortured and dumped for dead on the side of the road. Before being killed, Gorrostieta had been attacked twice by cartels for daring to challenge them. The third attack they waged on her, was her last.
