68. If drugs were less expensive, we couldnt use threat of organized crime to suppress inner city anger

And they would not have an easy medium of exchange (high cost per pound)
for covert activities such as surveilling Bin Laden throughout the 1990's,
meeting with him, intercepting his plans, intercepting copies of the
wire transfer from SA and Pakistan funding him, etc. Generally, without
drug money (including intercepted billions in proceeds from selectively
enforced major sting operations) we could not afford to keep tabs on the
REAL terrorists!!! Things would fall thru the net!
