Between a publisher and a subscriber database, there is a distribution database. It seems that what you did was list the distribution database, attempt to drop it as a publisher, which failed with error 14080, and then attempt to drop the publication database ('production') which failed with error 3724 because it was still publishing.

You might want to review Part 6 Replication in the Administrator's Companion (or in SQL Server Books Online) and look at the SQL Server Books Online articles, "Stored Procedures-Replication Stored Procedures" and "Stored Procedures Used for Subscription Administration".

Hope this helps,
