Make Money Your God and it will Plague You Like the Devil

Make money your god and it will plague you like the devil.

Commentary: 

This is the boat that both the anti-drug prohibitionists and the pro-drug cartels find themselves in.

The cartels live a life of violence, death, murder, torture, bribery, corruption… The anti-drug zealots have created the cartels and black market, thus ensuring all of the former behaviors.

Also, some of the prohibitionists could care less about drugs, they're really in it for the money they rake in due to drug testing, amazing wages, being able to trample others' rights far beyond what God or our Founding Documents allow, etc…
