Abe Lincoln on Prohibition

Rutland Herald (March 02,2016)

When discussing and debating marijuana legalization in Vermont or its continued prohibition, consider the words of Abraham Lincoln:

[quote]Prohibition … goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man’s appetite by legislation and makes 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.[/quote]
