I see nobody weighing the numbers of dead moonshiner gangs with what we've seen with legalization that's far worse: Over 10,000 dead drunken driving a year, alcohol-related violence, and alcohol-related diseases and deaths.
How on earth do a few thousand criminal gangsters shooting each other outweigh this?
Business growth, jobs, economy, curbing one level of illegal profiteering. We currently have a better American beer business than prior to prohibition. Also, Jesus would have ended prohibition.
