Prohibition was a bit different. First of all, you had the Constitution that banned alcohol and you had a handful of states that were saying they were no longer going to go abide by the Constitution. Second of all, there were many, many people dieing from drinking wood alcohol and many more who were going blind and facing other serious health issues because of it. Third of all, you had all the crime and infighting among the bootleggers that was placing the public at risk. I'm not sure alcohol is an appropriate analogy here.
