Gary Crooke, head of the National Crime Authority, is stating the obvious.

If organized crime were asked for a wish list, the present heroin 
distribution system would be on it. Resembling a self replicating computer 
virus, the system forces each addict to introduce more users to the system, 
a perfect feed-back loop guaranteed to generate profits.

Along for the ride are our new friends the aids and hepatitis viruses, also 
guaranteed longevity by the same feed-back.

Prohibition is killing your children.

There is a reason why politicians won't listen. There must be great concern 
at the top of the power structure for the results of enquiries that will 
certainly be made in earnest when prohibition has finally collapsed.

Once the tide has turned and public perception begins to realize what a 
horrendous atrocity has been perpetrated, motivation for such enquiry will 
be very strong, and heads will roll. One day politicians will be held 
accountable for the killing fields they have created.
