Question for the legal schoolers. Prohibition of alcohol required a constitutional ammendment. Prohibition of the various illegal drugs today does not. Why? Did the legal situation change somehow, to allow the federal government to ban things without needing an ammendment? It just seems strange that a law is enough today, but back then it had to be an ammendment. - NewCrusader


The bulk of the discussion of the background behind the passage (and later repeal) of this amendment to the United States Constitution has now moved to the new, expanded article on Prohibition in the United States. Join the discussion there--and the debate, as soon as I open it on that page.--TerryHTalk 14:10, 7 April 2007 (EDT)
