    "The apocalypse never happened" as some predicted...

    When the country of Portugal decriminalized ALL illegal drugs eight years ago.

    The country did NOT become a haven for drug use.

    Drug abuse & drug crime actually DRASTICALLY DECREASED.

    Only in your dreams, cops get to many toys out of the war on drugs to give it up.

    No bootleggers ever decided on living another live of crime. They started the Mormon Church I think.

    The difference between their government and ours is they don't rely on illegal drugs for income.
