Prohibition isn't good because it is great.

Great =/= Good

Assuming that prohibition is great means that if you conclude that it is simultaneously good you would be putting it into pure flux of adjectives meaning it could just as likely be bad and thus the resolution's BoP would not have been upheld by Pro.

Reasons for voting decision: con didn't make the connection or provide any evidence that great =/= good, but pro failed to show how alcohol was terrible. Sine pro had the BoP, he loses.
