Prohibitioning is Hard Work

It’s gotten to the point where it just makes me laugh.
Mark Kleiman has a good post about meth policy based on a New York Times Article.

Policies that make pseudoephedrine harder to buy in order to deprive methamphetamine cooks of a key ingredient can indeed reduce small-scale domestic production, but the result is increased supply of a more expensive and more potent version of the same drug from Mexico.

And then, as usual, he has to do this…

If you think the moral of the story is that drug abuse control policy is always futile, I can’t agree. But if you think the moral of the story is that drug abuse control policy is hard, I’m with you.

Gotta admire his perseverance. Despite all the facts, history, and his own critiques, this “reality-based” guy is determined that someday, somehow, he’s going to find a way to make prohibition work.
