Definition of insanity: Keep doing what you have been doing and expect different results.

Except for moonshiners, who we've had at least as far back as George Washington and still have today, crime associated with beverage alcohol largely dried up after Prohibition ended.

If recreational drugs which are presently illegal were made legal in the same way alcohol was (re)legalized, why would the result be significantly different?
