Prohibition Vs. Prohibition

Prohibition of Alcohol is a thing most people agree was a dismal failure. It is widely agreed that Prohibition of alcohol in the United States spurred on gang violence and was a gross violation of personal freedoms. Despite this wide held belief almost all politicians and a good chunk of society still feels that prohibition of drugs is a good thing. Lets compare prohibition to prohibition and think very carefully about the differences.

Alcohol Prohibition

  • deemed bad for the moral fiber of the United States
  • causes a variety of health issues
  • despite the prohibition of alcohol use flourished throughout the ban
  • since legal sale was banned illegal organizations took over the sale of alcohol
  • gang violence rose
  • general public began taking the letter of the law much less serious and due to government propaganda trust the government less
  • individual rights are infringed upon
Drug Prohibition
  • deemed bad for the moral fiber of the United States
  • various drugs cause various health issues to varying degrees, many considerably less serious than alcohol
  • despite the prohibition of drugs use flourishes to this day
  • since legal sale is banned illegal organizations have taken over the sale and production of drugs to the point of essentially taking over entire countries
  • gang violence is on the rise directly related to drugs
  • the general public does not take the drug laws serious at all and due to government propaganda trust the government less
  • individual rights are infringed upon

So what is the difference between the prohibition of drugs and the prohibition of alcohol. I say there is no difference. I challenge anyone out there to find a legitimate reason for the prohibition of drugs that does not involve moral obligations.
