it's just foul how the author of this article argues that poaching needs to be brought under control,and then one can
have a well regulated ivory trade.The point its that poaching has to be brought under control,and the traffic then ended.
You can't compare ivory to alcohol,drugs and tobacco
are all things people which cause addiction. Is anybody addicted to ivory? Does anyone need ivory? Let's consider that
at least 95% of the ivory for sale in ivory is worthless plastic which is something that I learned long before. As long as any legal
trade is allowed ivory from elephants killed illegally will be classified as legal. That's why a ban needs to be complete
and total. All seized ivory should simply be destroyed,and there can be no exceptions.
