    Congress should outlaw alcohol again tomorrow. It's highly addictive, has no medicinal value, lethal withdrawals, a cause of great social strife. Something tells me though it would be the death of the bullshit interpretation of the commerce clause that we live under.

    Maybe, but we tried that once, and it led to organized crime with so mich power that the FBI and federal government feared them.

    They should just let the people manufacture it, like weed. Maybe just wine, and abolish everything else. Alchohol is insane, it fuels so many deaths every year.

    Yes.

    Because we need more organized crime, death, and corruption.

    not illegal, because that doesn't really work, but it shouldn't be promoted

    The other day I popped an oxycodone & washed it down with some Jack Daniels. Woke up 2 hours later & couldn't feel my legs. Talk about a good time.

    if alcohol was illegal then we would all just find other ways to slowly kill ourselves.

    Yep, in this case it's something that the government wouldn't even see as an option. They just need to let up on weed though.

    Side note: I had a buddy back in Afghanistan that tried to make alcohol by doing some stuff using canned fruit. Didn't work at all.

    Fact Check: True.

    Also not factored into this body count: Something like 50% of homicides involve alcohol (perp is drunk, victim is drunk, or both).

    They really lay the tax on liquor. That surprised me when I was there. Most bottles were easily twice the price as something you'd find in the States.

    sanitization and sealed fermentation are extremely important to attain a safe drinkable finished product.

    We need to keep the young people away from it. So maybe we should make the drinking age limit to 30 then 40 then 50 and eventually a complete ban.
