Do gangs have Lobbyists?

In light of the grandiose failure of the War on Drugs, I have to wonder if that is just the marketing front for the gangs (and hippies) and their lobbyists. Hear me out: Right now all drugs are illegal, yet readily available without regulation. Who is making the money off this illegal industry? Certainly not the government, so I must wonder, with the clear failings of the system, the infinite waste of money that is the DEA, the seemingly concrete position against legalizing it in Washington DC, who is maintaining this system of total failure?

Do the Nortenos (or hippies) send suited gangsters (or hippies) to DC to hob-nob and pat politicians on the back for keeping their multi-million dollar cartels in business? Do they take all that Southern California cocaine money and spend it on Senators and Congressmen who keep the whole thing illegal and un-taxed so the dumbshit gangsters can keep running their racket on the American people? The United States LOVES to tax everything, so why would it not want in on what is probably one of the largest industries on Earth? Why would the government throw billions into futile programs that do little more than employ an agency worth of people? “Horale Senator, try this m____-F__ing caviar, shit is Chronic… speaking of chronic, you still supporting the war on drugs right? I got a tax-free business to run.”  Without gang lobbyists, the only explanation is that our nation is being run by terrified white people too scared to think straight OR they just like seeing blacks and Mexicans locked up for trivial crimes. Take away the money flow from the gangs, it’s a great military tactic and legitimate businessmen can do it without firing a bullet.
