    Wow! I never knew people were getting killed because they were smuggling alcohol over seas. Thats very harsh! I feel like people were just in deep crises and trying to make easy money, and the coast guards should not of killed the them.

    I agree with the first comment. The eighteenth amendment was too strict and now that alcohol was so popular it was hard to keep the amendment enforced. Good thing they came up with an age restriction. I hope they soon do something like this for cigarrettes to stop most of population from blakening their lungs more and more by the pack.

      Do you think the age limit of 18 for cigarettes which has been the law for years does anything to stop kids from smoking. We are moving in the opposite direction today from Prohibition by legalizing, regulating and taxing unhealthy choices such as smoking and drinking. I just heard on the radio this morning that new ant-smoking ads geared towards teens and young adults is getting the message across by showing graphic depictions of true health stories of smokers. When the negative affects of smoking are obvious people think twice and self regulate.

    Unfortunately, the Eighteenth Amendment was too strict and people loved alcohol. Therefore, the Twenty-first Amendment was created to repeal the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.
