I appreciate you debating my good man (or woman)... But I still am not completely convinced by the notion that just because "it's bad for ya" is a good enough reason to ban X, Y, or Z. Cigarettes are legal and they're bad for you. Lots of pesticides are bad for you, but they're still legal. Twinkies are really bad for you, but they're... do I need to continue? And on your claim of "liquor is bad for you and homemade is even worse", firstly; citation needed. Liquor being homemade doesn't by itself make it any more or less dangerous. Even though it's unlikely for a big company, a batch can be made bad, although they probably would just trash it if id didn't measure up, similarly a home batch can be made perfectly. My point? Where it's made doesn't matter as much as how it gets made. Secondly, most distillers started out as "homemade" operations, like the great Jasper Newton Daniel, better known as Jack Daniel, started out as a home distiller. Lastly, you obviously didn't learn a thing from Prohibition. Banning something doesn't make it go away, it just drives it underground and it becomes dangerous and dirty and if Prohibition and bans actually work, then why don't we just make meth and heroin illegal? Oh, wait... We did, it didn't work, but back to moonshine. Banning moonshine didn't make it go away, it just drove it underground and into the barns and back sheds of the backwoods. I just think the government shouldn't have the authority to tell us that we can make wine, we can make beer, we can make mead, but we can't make whiskey. I'd love to see your responses. The floor is yours.
