    What is the fundamental difference between the prohibition of the 1920's and the current war on drugs?

    Their gangsters were more glamorous. Today's gangsters have no class.

    Our political leaders are more stupid now. They fail to see the anti drug laws don't work either.

    Back in the 1930's the G men went in with Tommy guns.


    You don't see anything like that now.
    You get ooooooohh you violated my civil right b******x.


    As far as I am concerned the Justice system all over the world
    should be toughened up. If you kill you will be killed.
    If you rob or rape you will be jailed and for a long time too.

    There should be no suspended sentences and if you get 10 years
    then you should do 10 years and not a f******g day before that 10 years are up.

    Prison is for punishment and it should be f******g harsh.
    It's supposed to be prison not a 5 star hotel.

    What was that movie with Eastwood where he was hanged
    and he was a lawman.

    He went out after those who hanged him and he had to bring them all
    back to the hanging judge?

    None. In both cases criminal cartels get rich, drugs are usually plentiful, cops are corrupted, and users become criminals due to the high cost of their habit. Violence centered around the trade spills over and kills civilians.

    The CIA ships in the drugs today and wants to stop their competition. Don't even know if CIA existed during prohibition.
