The Black Market Cannot Be Dominated

People buy and sell anything on the black market either for profit or survival; these are two motives so powerful that to authority could reasonably expect to eliminate all actors in such a scenario.

There are several examples of purely-for-profit actions in different kinds of black markets like the trade of narcotics, conflict diamonds, weapons and even alcohol that show profusely that no action by part of any government can erase such transactions completely. Even if violence is applied on the crackdown there will always be someone willing to take the risk and play hard against any sort of law for a good profit that is increased as the risk also rises. 

Reality shows that: After hundreds of deaths and crimes related to the prohibition law, the government of the United States - the most powerful country on Earth - had to surrender to the fact that people would still drink alcohol, no matter what. Not even the Japanese empire could stand against the might of the U.S. as well as the folks who would like to get drunk sometimes.
