Truisms In Support Of Abolishment Of Anti-Constitutional Prohibition Laws

Submitted by David Borden on
"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of intemperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's apetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that ARE NOT CRIMES. A prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principals apon which our country was founded."---Abraham Lincoln/Speech in the Illinois House of Representitives/12-18-1840 ! "The prestige of government has been diminished undoughtedly by the prohibition laws. For nothing is more destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is connected with this."---Albert Einstein !! Marijuana WILL be legalized some day, because the many law students who now smoke pot will someday become Congressmen and they'll legalize it in order to protect themselves. !!!
