On February 14th, 1929 seven gang members of Bugs Moran’s gang were shot down in a garage in Chicago in a mass murder arranged by Al Capone. It was the most notorious killing of the first Prohibition Era. It revealed the true nature of the Prohibition gang wars, and it helped turn the tide against the 18th Amendment.

In the past five years, nearly 50,000 people have been killed in the Prohibition War raging in Mexico. 12,000 dead last year alone.

That’s a St. Valentine’s Day Massacre, four times per day, every day, for five years.

That’s why the two past Presidents of Mexico, and the past Presidents of Columbia and Brazil have called on the United States to legalize marijuana, as part of a plan to end the violence and protect democracy in the hemisphere.

It’s time to end Prohibition. Again.

Happy Valentine’s Day
