Isn't That Like Prohibition?
Interesting story on the gyrations UT is going through to get “alco-pops” out of grocery stores and into state liquor stores, which may not be able to actually sell them. Hence, folks are talking “ban.” But I love the response of a legislator: However, Senate Majority Whip Dan Eastman, R-Bountiful, said he can't see the state going so far as to ban the product. "Why would you ban it," Eastman said. "Isn't that like Prohibition?" Or, like, you know, the War on (Some) Drugs?
