The Netherlands moved to ban the sale of potent hashish cannabis on Thursday, eroding 40 years of liberal drug policy, over fears that the proceeds were flowing to organised crime gangs.

... thereby ensuring that the proceeds flow to organised crime gangs.

Drug laws subsidise organised crime.

Exactly, and frankly Im really having a hard time believing that all those conservatives are clueless to this hard fact.

If anything arab sumgglers (a big problem in the Netherlands) are going to be making an even bigger profit once the drugs become illegal. It will be just as hard to smuggle them in, but now their price is going to be inflated beyond all belief.

Unless you believe that simply making the drugs illegal (to hold)will somehow magically make them harder to smuggle into the country. (Already an illegal act)

How is this a "conservatives are idiots" issue? I'm a fiscal conservative, I'd have no issue with legalizing pot in the US, the money they would make on taxing the sale of it would be astronomical. It would be a far more effective way to reduce the US deficit than to try and tax those that already pay more than everyone else when it comes to taxes, that and reducing the out of control spending to begin with that BOTH sides do.

I don't see liberals jumping to legalize drugs in the US.
