    wouldn't all those inefficiencies tend to encourage the development of the pot/hemp economy?

    If somebody builds a better mousetrap, and the government makes it illegal, eventually word gets around and people will wise up. May take a few generations, but more effort is required to prop up suboptimal products/industries and maintain prohibition than for a suppressed market to eventually find equilibrium.

    I dunno, not an economist, just food for thought....
