Prohibition perils

I’m calling about this silly marijuana letter to the editor in today’s paper. Basically, she said pot is stronger now than back in the ‘60s. That’s what happens when you make an item like that illegal. Before 1920, most Americans drank wine and beer, but because of prohibition, hard liquor became more popular because of the concentration levels and the ease of shipping.
