49. Prohibition was a total failure. Just llike drug prohibition is a failure now.

The only thing prohibition did/does is drive the booze/drugs underground and let the criminal element easily get involved.

Drugs have been around since forever. Ancient civilizations smoked/ate hallucinogenic plants, etc. Caffeine is a drug, and humans have been ingesting that for centuries. Drugs will always be around. They don't present a problem for most people. I think it's better when the criminal element is not involved. They "push," threaten, murder, beat up, and blackmail people.
