I believe they call it "toot"

It's Weird Al's "Midnight Star", so now I doubt the existence of Italian organized crime.

Seriously, do Brits not pay attention to the recent news stories about Italian police crackdowns on the 'Ndrangheta?  For example, https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/19/wo​r​ld/europe/ndrangheta-arrests-police-ma​fia.html

Secret? I swear I've seen movies and documentaries on the subject. That's not much of a secret.

It even negotiated with the Americans before the Allied invasion of Sicily during World War 2.

That was dangerous.  Never go in against a Sicilian when death is on the line.

It's the Daily Star - this is kinda the equivalent of a reader's digest article about cocaine still existing.  Low-middlebrow blurbs for people that don't pay much attention to that sort of thing

Cocaine may be a hell of a drug but it's totally dirty.  If you buy it you are literally supporting murder, suffering, corruption and kids dissolving their feet in vats of acid.

Yes, I support full legalization of drugs.

Oh yeah oil is so clean.

And oh beef so clean. Not.

Companies are no less vile than Criminals.
Only difference is the lawyers and money laundering.
And you should see the vin diagram on that.

In a larger sense, any system (in this case, capitalism) that disincentivizes health, safety, the environment, etc in favor of other items such as manufacturing, sales, distribution, logistics, etc is obviously going to result in a net loss of the former. The fact that we allow individuals to buy an unlimited amount of goods and services means that there will be an unlimited demand for money.

Some people say that capitalism is the problem, because although cocaine might be illegal, it's still a business. Capitalism is the problem, but it's not the only conceivable competition-based system. Anyway, the problem is, you can't really regulate goods and services out of existence in a capitalist system. You can make drugs and prostitution illegal or you can have capitalism, but not both. By having capitalism and a consumer society, we've taught people that money is an end unto itself, and created an entire system that relies on currency.

Necessarily, it's a choice between either legalizing vice or ending capitalism.
