Happy Repeal Day! Some Thoughts on Prohibitory Laws

"Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. 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 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."

This quotation is often attributed to Abraham Lincoln, but I have found that no one is 100% certain if he truly is the source. Regardless, I think that it is a powerful statement and remains applicable.
