    Nice. They do forget to mention the other people who are happy about prohibition–law enforcement and their industrial support companies…and the politicians who get money from those groups.

  • Excellent campaign. Both strands, videos and demonstrations, can be very effective provided anti-prohibition movement can keep the momentum and the pressure. Even though the message in itself is not new, there is something particularly poignant when shown through these “fake” characters: the reality is so overwhelming and telling that those same characters become real spokespersons. Reality surpasses fiction!

    ‘Bravo!’, indeed! This is what’s needed. Like when house-training pups, nothing gets the point across like rubbing the face of hypocrites in their own hypocrisy…publicly.

    After all, what can they say? That the drug prohibition that they support doesn’t create black market niches for shady characters to fill?

    The prohib and the crook have always been joined together at the wallet. Just like way back when.
