Taking Back Control from the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board

Over 101 years after the ratification of the 18th Amendment that prohibited “the manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors,” and ushered in the era of Prohibition -- the largest failed experiment in government paternalism in American history -- it might be difficult to see the continued impact that this period has had on our country. One need only not look hard to see that America’s love affair with alcohol is as alive and well today as it was during the time of the bootleggers. Some places like New Orleans are so far removed from Prohibition that open containers on city streets are all but encouraged and a parched traveler can stop for a Drive-Thru Daiquiri and continue on down the highway.
