|Answer to No. 1:
That's what we have right now, you myopic bonehead!!! And it's all BECAUSE of your stupid war on drugs which forces prices more than high enough (180 times cost in most cases!) to pay for the multiple layers of sales forces which seep into every nook and cranny (and sheriff's department, and mayor's office, and intelligence agency, and playground and gradeschool, etc., etc. etc.) of society imaginable (AND causes the early release from overcrowded prisons of murderers, rapists, muggers and other violent real criminals with the mandatory-sentencing laws the drug warriors have perpetrated). The ONLY success the drug warriors have ever had (and probably ever MEANT to have) is to give the police and politicians almost unlimited search-and-seizure privileges against EVERY private citizen, thank you very much for being so damned short-sighted.

"I think that prohibition of drugs is the most immoral program that the United States has ever engaged in. It's destroyed civil rights at home and it is responsible for thousands of deaths abroad." -- Nobel Laureate Dr. Milton Friedman
"Every friend of freedom... must be as revolted as I am by the prospect
of turning the United States into an armed camp, by the vision of jails
filled with casual drug users and of an army of enforcers empowered to
invade the liberty of citizens on slight evidence." -- Milton Friedman,
Nobel Prize-winning free market economist, Wall Street Journal,
Sept. 7, 1989.
"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance.
It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond
the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite
by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes.
A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which
our government was founded." -- Abraham Lincoln (1809-65), Dec. 18, 1840
"The prestige of government has undoubtedly been lowered considerably
by the Prohibition law. For nothing is more destructive of respect for
the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot
be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of
crime in this country is closely connected with this." -- Albert
Einstein, "My First Impression of the U.S.A.", 1921
"There are no violent gangs fighting over aspirin territories. There
are no violent gangs fighting over whisky territories or computer territories
or anything else that's legal. There are only criminal gangs fighting over
territories covering drugs, gambling, prostitution, and other victimless
crimes. Making a non-violent activity a crime creates a black market, which
attracts criminals and gangs, which turns what was once a relatively harmless
activity affecting a small group of people into a widespread epidemic of
drug use and gang warfare." – Harry
