    Why didn't we ban tobacco and alcohol? It boils down to revenue, doesn't it?

    Especially when you've got monopoly on alcohol. Now.....the government is going to be the marijuana "pusher."

    Nah. It's because of the revenues. It's better to just get in on the action.

    In the USA we tried banning alcohol. That did not end well - it basically created a large, violent criminal industry.

    We have tried to deal with tobacco through regulation and education. That seems to me to have been a better approach.
