What could become the biggest issue of Obama's Administration

Johann Hari, columnist for the London Independent and the Huffington Post, raises his concern for Mexico's rising violence and corruption. As our economy faces another Great Depression our nation must face the issue of drug prohibition as it faced alcohol prohibition in it's first.

In the words of 1930's columnist Franklin Adams

"Prohibition is an awful flop.
We like it.
It can't stop what it's meant to stop.
We like it.
It left a trail of graft and slime,
It don't prohibit worth a dime,
It's filled our land with vice and crime,
Nevertheless, we're for it."
