Because of this scandal I am saying regulate it a lot more now than legalize it. Semantics, but regulations are what we need and it sounds better to conservative ears. Conservatives can get their heads wrapped around strictly regulating and controlling an industry. So let's use regulation to keep society safe because what you don't regulate you don't have control over and Prohibition may be a form of regulation, but it has been tried unsuccessfully for decades now and is widely regarded as a waste of police resources and a wrecker of minority communities and young people's lives. Time for a new approach from all you old drug warriors like Joe Biden and Pete Sessions.
