Since our Countrys War on a certain few herbs and Drugs causes such carnage devastation and so many deaths in our towns and cities I do hope that more and more people speak out about all the harm and all the deaths that our current Prohibition causes Perhaps its worth reminding folks about a few facts about our Wars on Drugs Our earlier Prohibition raised our National Murder Rate from about 11 or 12 murders per 100000 citizens per year to about 98 murders per 100000 citizens per year So roughly speaking that War on Drugs raised our National Murder Rate almost 1000 Then just as now much of our violent crimes and many of our murders were caused by black market drug sellers fighting over the rights to sell their wares etc Please note alcohol per se wasnt the cause of all our new extra murders during Prohibition but rather Prohibition itself was the proximal cause of these murders Likewise drugs dont cause many of our murders today but people fighting over the rights to sell them do cause many of our murders today All these murders would not happen if drugs were legal and regulated just like tobacco is today Those in favor of our current War on Drugs wish for some control and regulation over illegal drugs but by making drugs illegal there is little control and even less regulation of illegal drugs For instance some folks say its easier for young school kids to buy hard illegal drugs than it is to by tobacco This is despite the fact that the tobacco companies often have storeowners place tobacco where young kids can steal it easily The following year after our Noble Experiment our earlier Prohibition was ended the murder rate in Michigan dropped 70 In our nation as a whole our murder rate quickly dropped 50 following Prohibition Note our National Murder Rate ended up about 500 higher
