“smoking has been reduced through appealing to the sensibility of the public“.

I think it has been reduced through the highly publicized attack on the industry by greedy trial lawyers and their well paid for expert arguments linking cigarettes to cancer. It also helped tremendously when Hollyweird quit sponsoring cigarettes in their movies, and promoting the habit by their actors smoking in every scene. The decline in smokers has also been reduced by a huge sin tax being levied on the habit and heavy handed government interference in the conduct of legal businesses restricting it’s use in public as well as private places, restaurants and bars.

As far as legalizing hemp is concerned, if you need a better argument against it than drug infested Amsterdam, I can’t think of one.

I say legalize prostitution, tax it, regulate it, and promote it as a healthy alternative to AIDS, marital strife and excessive blogging. Think of all the time and effort will be saved in not having to investigate politicians, clergy, and youth sports coaches, as well as money wasted by law enforcement conducting entrapment stings on the poor, hapless, lonely customers just trying to buy a few moments of pleasure from a willing supplier.
