"dry" counties, age requirements. Crime over prohibited items shows that people are going to do what they want and punishing for them is a waste of resources for any society to spend on.
The funniest part about "Legalize it, regulate it, tax the crap out of it" is how the argument ignores the fact that there is an entire black market of people already buying, selling, transporting, etc. They don't care about the law, why do you think they'd start caring once it is legal?
There's a black market BECAUSE of prohibition. Have you even heard of Al Capone?
Also, you're not a libertarian.
There is also a large black market in tobacco and Alcohol currently, even though it is legal. You cannot tell me they are there because of phoibi... never mind.
I can't honestly believe you just said that. Basically you say enforcing the law is a waste of money. Lets just get rid of the police altogether?
And as a matter of fact, a lot of the black market in alcohol and tobacco is actually due to people wanting to make money in organised crime. They aren't selling it to under-aged people or in countries where it is illegal, they are making it out of dangerous items, selling it cheap and counterfeit. The same would almost certainly happen were marijuana to become legal.
But again, I cannot take seriously a comment which in essence seems to state that law enforcement is pointless.
