The following is an excerpt from idebate.org:
In almost all countries in the world, adults are allowed to buy and consume alcohol with very little restriction (although there are often laws regarding the exact hours that bars and shops are allowed to sell alcohol, and laws against drinking and driving). This is in marked contrast to the legal situation with regard to other mind-altering (or ‘psycho-active’) drugs such as cannabis, cocaine, ecstasy, acid, and heroin. However, the experience of ‘Prohibition’ in the USA in the 1920s and 1930s, when there was a huge black market in alcohol run by a powerful criminal underworld, makes most people wary of trying that solution again. The prohibition debate deals with proposition of tighter restrictions or complete access to alcohol. This debate is one that boils down to a compromise about what balance should be struck between the need to protect society on the one hand and the need to preserve individual liberties on the other.
