Here’s something for the statist/collectivist brain trust, from Nobel Prize laureate Milton Friedman. Read up and perhaps add a few points to your IQ and EQ.
POINTS TO CONSIDER:
* The only party which can meet the armed state is organized crime/drug cartels that have the connections to move goods through customs or around customs via smuggling.
* Law of Supply and Demand
– Government prohibition causes scarcity of supply in the face of high demand.
– Low supply under conditions of high demand leads to high prices.
‘ High prices leads to high revenue for the wholesale supplier, which has connections within the government.
By prohibiting drugs, government ensures high prices, which is revenue for cartels.
