    There are some still in Tennessee and Kentucky and WV. They still do it, but there isn't the rampant crime like with Al Capone. They are just doing it to avoid the taxes and regulations.

    Start making real drugs...pure drugs...available legally and see what happens. We've never known anything else in this country...it's not going to get any worse than it is.
    Actually, we have had weed and cocaine before the turn of the 19th century. cocaine was first illegalized because of democrats in the south hearing about a woman having sex with 3 black guys on cocaine, so they illegalized it for blacks. Then the slippery slope happened. Had the propaganda movie about weed brought to us by big tobacco. Hell, tobacco is fighting the ecig right now like they did to weed cause its an alternative.

    Speaking of tobacco, California just changed the law, starting June 9th, for the legal age to be 21. That'll fix it.

    As far as cocaine, my mom has told me stories about it when she was a teen/early twenties back in the late 1960s. That was her drug of choice and she said that it really had no addictive quality or side effects because of its purity.

    Obviously you haven't spent any significant amount of time in Appalachia.

    heck London is poised to put the First Muslim mayor in. All cause muslim refugees and illegal immigrants there are finally enough of a voting block there to be seen as a majority (or so it seems to me)..

    They wouldn't do this if it were legal in every state.

    Guadalajara is better than Cuba or North Korea. Guadalajara is even better than Detroit.

    Just remember, Hillary said that she has a lot of experience dealing with men like you who sometimes leave the reservation.

    That comes from the high regulations on it. There is a black market on cigarettes in NYC because of the high regulations and tax on them.

    That's some mighty big talk considering you have some bizarre need to constantly tell us that you will never get divorced.
