Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sun, Mar 8, 2009 - 9:56 pm

This page will provide information about the problems of prohibition.

It will cover various attempts at prohibition throughout the ages, most notably alcohol prohibition in the early 1900’s and its subsequent repeal.

Expect various statistics showing

  • the amount of money spent on prohibition over time,
  • estimations of the amount of money channeled in to the black market over time,
  • the rise of cartel violence and prison populations even though increasing numbers of law enforcement officers have focused on enforcing prohibition
  • and more.
