I think one of the biggest post-prohibition problems is going to be from people who are so vehemently in favor of prohibition, that when it goes away, they will do anything to:
- Reinstate prohibition
- Make it seem as though ending prohibition was a mistake
Basically this means there will be folks who pressure law makers to reinstate prohibitionist laws, perhaps even laws that go beyond the former Constitution-crushing versions previously in place.
It also means there will be prohibitionists who work hard to make it seem things are out of control. They will foment unrest and do horrible things to make “drug users” (or any anti-prohibitionist) look bad; they will set them up in embarrassing situations designed to bring shame, they will covertly undermine things that shouldn’t be undermined. In short they will do many Non-Golden Rule things.
Probably the easiest to predict EVIL they will do is to administer drugs to unsuspecting people. This is sure to garnish much news attention, but my main hope is their schemes are uncovered and the REAL reason for the _____ tragedy was because of illegal behavior of prohibitionists administering drugs to unsuspecting people.
However, the threat of prohibitionists doing such things should not be a deterrent to ending prohibition. Why? Do we give in to terrorists now? Do we bow down to those who threaten us with harm? NO! In any case, I would say there are probably some prohibitionists who are at work doing this TODAY.
