But the old-fashioned kind. Against alcohol. In Alaska. Of course it doesn't work. Prohibition never does.
Alcohol abuse and alcohol-related crime is a huge problem in small-town Alaska. After the drinking comes the sexual abuse and rape, often incestuous. A friend of mine is a public defender up there. Oh, the stories he can tell. You know, of good honest small-town values. It's all too common for a guy to get drunk and then stumble into the next trailer and diddle their sister/daughter/niece/old-lady neighbor.
Then the guy tells the cops everything that happened (that is to say, confesses) and can't understand why their lawyer can't get them off ("but eh, all I did was touch her."). Finally they ask for a new lawyer... ha, joke's on them! There are no other lawyers.
Here's the story about failed prohibition from the New York Times.
