"Here is one by Abraham Lincoln that you dodged like a vampire being confronted with a cross, "Prohibition... goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes... A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded."

Did you know that Lincoln suffered from severe depression and through out his life he had many thoughts of suicide. Although Lincoln was considered to be a great president. I would not say that every decision he made was the right one. Crime during the Lincoln era was not as wide spread as its been in recent history.

Prohibition was imposed because during these tough economic times many people (men) were drowning their problems in alcohol, and in turn were commiting violent crimes against women and children. It was the women that took a stand and demanded that prohibition be imposed. In a time when women had little rights, alcohol related crimes more than often went unpunished.


Your wrong about why prohibition was abolished, it wasn't because some one had an idea the crime wars between the gangsters and law enforcement would stop. It was because of the economy. The law makers felt that it would be in the best interest of the country to legalize the production and sale of alcohol. After the great market crash they felt that the distribution of alcohol would create more jobs and in turn help the economy. Alcohol was again legalized but with greater restrictions.
