It Didn't. Because Reasonable Regulations were Implemented. But Critically, because Reasonable Taxes were invoked. Not just Then. Buy over the Years. There have been Enough clear thinkers that when some Extreme Alcohol Tax Bill has come to the Table, that Everything I have said in my last Couple of Posts has Far Outweighed the Udder Milkers. But those Days are Gone. Forever. In Today's era, where the Mentality that Leveraging your MSA Payments for 35 Cents on the Dollar is a Sound Fiscal Policy, when People like Me bring up the Issues that I have in State Budget meetings, we are Shouted Down. Or we Don't Exist. The Games are On. And I've Tivo-ed Up enough so I can Skip thru the Commercials. But I'll say this in Closing... The Dominate Factors (some will say the Only Real Factors) to How Large a Black Market is are Legality and Product Price. If you make Something Legal, but the Product Price is Much Higher than on the Black Market, don't Wonder why things Become what they Become.
