It is time to end prohibition on mma. Prohibition never works. Prohibition on alcohol was a complete disaster. Prohibition on plants have been a complete disaster. The government cannot prohibit anything, it can only punish people for not complying with some bureaucrat's rules. The market will always provide what is in demand. Prohibition will just make the cost go up and the quality go down. Government's are supposed to protect our rights, not take them away. If a service or good doesn't interfere with the right's (life, liberty, property) of another, then it should not be prohibited.
The New York politicians who support this prohibition on mma will ultimately lose. And when they do, hopefully, they will lose their privileged seat in the New York government as well.
