Should alcohol be made illegal? Provide rationales, pro and cons, as well as your own opinion. Also, discuss what you believe is the appropriate role of the government: should it help enforce certain standards of morality or should it allow people to make any choice they want–no matter how misguided–as long as it does not hurt others?
