Einstein on Prohibition
The prestige of government has undoubtedly been
lowered considerably by the Prohibition law. For nothing is more
destructive of respect for the government and the law of the land
than passing laws which cannot be enforced. It is an open secret
that the dangerous increase of crime in this country is closely
connected with this.
- Albert Einstein, "My First Impression of
the U.S.A.", 1921
"Prohibition goes beyond the bounds of reason
in that it attempts to control a man's appetite
by legislation and make 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."
Abraham Lincoln, December, 1840

what Constitutional authority is the drug war being waged?
The "War on Drugs" is nothing more than
a war on the Bill of Rights. In the name of Prohibition, we are
being forced to give up our Civil Rights. Click on the links below
