Hillary Clinton: We Can’t Legalize Drugs Because ‘There Is Just Too Much Money in It’


Last week, while visiting Mexico, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was interviewed by Denise Maerker of Televisa, who asked her opinion of proposals to address black-market violence by repealing drug prohibition. Clinton’s response illustrates not only the intellectual bankruptcy of the prohibitionist position but the economic ignorance of a woman who would be president (emphasis added):

Maerker: In Mexico, there are those who propose not keeping going with this battle and legalize drug trafficking and consumption. What is your opinion?

Clinton: I don’t think that will work. I mean, I hear the same debate. I hear it in my country. It is not likely to work. There is just too much money in it, and I don’t think that—you can legalize small amounts for possession, but those who are making so much money selling, they have to be stopped.

Yes, too much be the DEA, by State agencies, to be lost for payouts to foreign govenors, and to all sorts of shadowy Federal and State programs, and the 'deals' and programs and businesses they spawn....and of course there is always Hillary and Bill's past history to consider.
