I can only add this to Tony Norman's excellent column on the war on drugs ("Stop the Drug War Now, More Than Ever," March 24) -- namely that public safety will be dramatically increased in a post-prohibition world. Most professionals agree that 70 percent of felony crime is associated with prohibition. If that goes away, then the police can once again focus on public safety issues like the deadly DUI, the child molesters and rapists, etc.
