If God can’t enforce prohibition…

Delightful OpEd by Peter Christ in the New York Star Gazette: Don’t Tax Drugs, Legalize Them
Good all the way through. The conclusion nails it nicely.

Some point to alcohol Prohibition as the prime example of how a prohibition fails. I choose instead to draw upon a far older example. When Adam and Eve were living in the Garden of Eden, surrounded by paradise with all their needs met, there was only one thing prohibited to them. Yet, in spite of their perfect existence, they couldn’t resist that one temptation. I ask you, if God can’t enforce prohibition, what makes us think we can do better?
