Why I’m against prohibition.
Number 1. It doesn’t work, War on Drugs, gun control, 20’s speakeasy, drugs in prison.
Number 2. Only makes prohibited item more profitable to sell. Decrease supply without decreasing demand.
Number 3. Prohibited substances are more alluring to rebellious teenagers.
Number 4. Attracts criminal element and organized crime. Instead of friendly drug store clerk, gang banger.
Number 5. Drives creation of more dangerous alternatives. Iron law of prohibition. Hard alcohol, crack, krokodil, fake weed, 3d printed guns, street walkers, no recourse for bad product, no consumer reports.
Number 6. Breaks up poor families. Dad in prison, mom on welfare. State raised kids.
Number 7. Police militarization. Swat teams on wrong house. Training, Same force will be used against you.
Number 8. Asset forfeiture laws. Lady who lost her car because her husband soliciting a prostitute. Cops only stop cars leaving town with money.
Number 9. Peaceful people go in, violent people come out.
Number 10. Assumes that we don’t have the right to choose for ourselves, but we do have the right to choose for others. Totally inconsistent. You own yourself, you don’t own others.

This is a question people ask me all the time. The answer is simple. Copywriting is persuasion in print. It’s a form of writing that leads someone to a desired way of thinking. Most of the time, it’s to a “buy Now” button. But once you understand the foundations of copywriting, the possibilities are limitless....
No, not price gouging, done to death. The moral thing to do is raise prices to keep one person from cleaning you out. If you raise too high, you wonâ€™t sell. If you sell, itâ€™s because the market set your price. What Iâ€™m gonna be talking about this week is raising your prices, outside of...
People keep telling me that I’ve got to get on Instagram. To be honest, I’m a little bit intimidated. There’s always a learning curve with each new platform, and I’m not sure how images could fit into what I do. Well, I wasn’t sure, until this interview. Trish Leto joins me this week to do...
