Letter to the editor

Dear editor,

I believe that prohibition act is a bad idea it will just cause more problems for the people in the U.S. Like rebellion and illegal activity such as smuggling and selling of alcohol which lead to even more violence like murder and Gangsters. Also government officials must also obey the law and share the same punishment for disobeying the law. Prohibition must be lifted our else this will never end. so make the next step to end Prohibition.
