What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?

Where prohibition meets prophecy.
Evil drug prohibition laws caused another needless, shame filled, and painful death; foreshadowing what awaits the Prohibitionists and their supporters.*
Over the years and decades, a lot has been written with regard to the "moral decay" of society in the United States, and even other countries around the world.
On your clothes men find the lifeblood of the innocent poor, though you did not catch them breaking in.
Yet in spite of all this you say, ‘I am innocent; he is not angry with me.’ But I will pass judgment on you because you say, ‘I have not sinned.’
A great and wondrous sign appeared in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head. She was pregnant and cried out in pain as she was about to give birth.
Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on his heads.
His tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so that he might devour her child the moment it was born.
She gave birth to a son, a male child, who will rule all the nations with an iron scepter. And her child was snatched up to God and to his throne.
[Jesus said,] “Then the king told the attendants, ‘Tie him hand and foot, and throw him outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’”
Their bodies will lie in the street of the great city, which is figuratively called Sodom and Egypt, where also their Lord was crucified.
For three and a half days [people] from every [group], tribe, language and nation will gaze on their bodies and refuse them burial.
Since a very old (in Internet years) webpage was being loaded many times over, it was time to revisit it. (There is currently only one editor and proofreader.)
The champions and promoters of death, stigma, lies, and pain screamed in faces, over the airwaves, and in the oldspapers about their lust for continued undeserved, unconstitutional, and un-Biblical power over others.
[The fourth beast] had large iron teeth; it crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. It was different from all the former beasts, and it had ten horns.
[…] I wanted to know the true meaning of the fourth beast, which was different from all the others and most terrifying, with its iron teeth and bronze claws — the beast that crushed and devoured its victims and trampled underfoot whatever was left. I also wanted to know about the ten horns on its head […]
The ten horns are ten kings who will come from this kingdom.

Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God.
Drug Prohibition is intrinsically flawed.
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. […] I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, […] When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. […] I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you […] in prison, and did not help you?’
He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.
In 1922 John Erskine Ph.D., LLD, published a short book, more like an extended essay, entitled, Must Christians Choose Between the Bible and Prohibition? In the first paragraph he sets out the thesis: Prohibition is incompatible with Christianity.
He gives it a personalized tone through relaying key points in his conversations with a Presbyterian friend.
