Letter to the Editor
I can not believe they have imposed the Prohibition Act. Banning all alcohol in the whole country? So dumb!! Our own government officials who enacted this don't even follow it, so why should we? Also what about all the taxes and trade business we are losing? Not to mention it takes almost 4,000 members of one specific group just to enforce it! I want this repealed!!
