Prohibition the culprit rather than cannabis

To the editor,

It's disappointing that citizens don't realize it isn't drugs that 
are causing problems (Drugs Top List Of Concerns For Safer Streets, 
Mar. 6, 2007), but rather drug and cannabis plant prohibition, which 
is the culprit. It is in the same way alcohol didn't cause the 
problem during the original prohibition but rather alcohol 
prohibition. For 10 years after the repeal of alcohol prohibition 
murder rates decreased; there is reason to believe repealing the 
sequel will yield the same results.

Further, why is The News failing to research and report this information?
