I just read Tucker's Laissez Faire newsletter - presumably identical, but I haven't checked yet. Delicious irony!

"Fascinating, isn't it? One year ago, governments were laughing at this digital currency. Most everyone was. People said it was a fake currency, an Internet scam, a money-crankish Ponzi scheme. How times change! Now the world (sic) largest government is crying out, desperately trying to grab these coins. They consider them valuable assets, which, at $140 a pop, they certainly are."

The desire on the part of a large swath of humanity to dope itself up with something cannot be suppressed, no matter how hard governments try.

In history, this insane period of governments waging war on self-medication will be looked back as parent looks on a child, pity, curiosity, and bewilderment even, like slavery. Guns and violence versus self-medication is about as enlightened as having the cooking fire inside the cave.
