Oh, Hillary! Say it ain't so!

Why can't the US legalize drugs? "There's too much money in it."
In what will likely be seen as something of a Freudian slip by the US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton said recently in a Mexican news interview that the United States cannot legalize drugs as a means of fighting the black market because "there is just too much money in it."
No, it turns out she wasn't being unintentionally honest, just economically illiterate.
"You can legalize small amounts for possession, but those who are making so much money selling, they have to be stopped. They can’t be given an even easier road to take, because they will then find it in their interest to addict even more young people."
Hey, Hillary! You ever notice that hardcore dope dealers never, ever call for legalization? Even though they're supposedly the ones put most at risk by your laws? I wonder why that is?
