Bro. you're forgetting the best example. Alcohol Prohibition. What did this result in? More Booze options, illegal business practices and gangsters focusing on the illegal sale of alcohol to profit off of.

We've known for a long time this shit doesn't work but the people in power are sick fucks who just want the ability to control people and tell them what they can and can't do.

I'd considered that one, but IMO there's a little too much overlap with the drug war. I never understood why "drugs and alcohol" are treated differently in the first place.

Common thread though - you don't make the bad thing to away, and you give all the power to the black markets
