I wonder if this is the same thought process that makes retail stores think they can become more competitive by rearranging the layout of their merchandise?

"Prohibition has failed; legalisation is the least bad solution."

Such regretful lukewarm support for legalization of drugs always makes me wonder if they think it's too bad that alcohol is legal, and that if only there wouldn't be that nasty violent crime that results when a government tries to tell supposedly free citizens what they can put into their own bodies, it would be better to outlaw alcohol too.

It's weird, just plain weird, the car that is. Go for it.
