Peter Hitchens explaining the difference between alcohol prohibition, universally acknowledged as an abject failure, and marijuana and drug prohibition notes:
Alcohol had been legal for centuries, part of the culture of Christian civilization. You might as well try to make breathing illegal.
But cannabis, cocaine and heroin are alien to our world, and could be driven out by firm action.
Alien to our world? Guither’s response:
Right -- it's not like they just... grow in the ground or anything. They came in spaceships.
We need to be firm and tell the space aliens to load up their cannabis, cocaine and heroin and take it all back to planet Druggie.
