As a Michigan police officer, I learned there were three major groups 
who support drug prohibition; Al Qaeda, drug dealers/makers and my 
profession - law enforcement.

All three make huge amounts of money off the drug trade. Terrorists 
use the money to fly planes into buildings and blow up buses and trains.

The drug dealers make big bucks in order to buy nice cars and a Swiss 
chalet. Police officers enjoy job security, exciting work and large 
overtime checks.

Canada benefits because prohibition has resulted in less crime, less 
death, less disease and saved the taxpayers billions.

Wait. Scratch that last sentence. Those reductions are what the 
politicians promised us, when we marched onto the prohibition road.
