The idea that alcohol should be illegal is so ridiculous it hardly seems worthy of debate. We already tried prohibition and it was a miserable failure. The Prohibition was supposed to improve our health. Instead, it resulted in binge drinking on other drinks that were often toxic. People started taking opium and organized crime took hold.
Making moonshine is not rocket science. If it's banned people will find other ways to get it. Alcohol has to be regulated by the government to ensure public safety. If the government has problems now imagine it without the tax revenues. Prohibition would be a waste of money and law enforcement's time. It would overburden our prisons that are already overcrowded. The public would never stand for it. Go ahead, listen in on our phone calls, but try to take away our beer and watch the revolution begin!
