Drugs, guns and the Middle Eastern Crime Squad

In another perfect illustration of how prohibition brings drugs and violence together, 20kg of precursor chemicals have been located within a Sydney syndicate also dealing in guns, reports the Sydney Morning Herald:
Since June Strike Force Centre, made up of detectives from the Middle Eastern Organised Crime Squad, has seized the guns, including three machine pistols, the precursors, cash and drugs.
As usual prohibition is not mentioned in the article, which leaves uninformed people with the impression that these 11 arrests validate prohibition even though they will make no difference to the availability or price of unregulated illicit drugs. Meanwhile the earnings from drugs finance the purchase of arsenals of deadly weapons like machine pistols and public shootings proliferate. Terrific.
