Re "Still profitable but not taxed" (SN&R Editorial, January 5):

In Ken Burns' outstanding 2011 PBS documentary Prohibition, it was
revealed that alcohol prohibition corrupted all levels of our
government-all the way up to the Warren G. Harding White House. The
alcohol cartels had hundreds of politicians on their payroll.

Is it unreasonable to suspect that the drug cartels of today are
following in the footsteps of the alcohol cartels? It's obvious that
medical-marijuana dispensaries were making a major dent in the income
of the drug cartels.

Would a $10 million to $15 million bribe motivate [President Barack]
Obama to change his policy regarding medical marijuana? We will never
know. But I certainly suspect so.
