If Prohibition is an example of peaceful civil disobedience, why do we still have thousands in jail and thousands more arrested each year for drug violations? There were certainly many who agreed with the Prohibition laws (my grandmother was a founding member of the WCTU), just as there are many who agree with the drug laws today. Prohibition and ending prohibition had much more to do with backroom payoffs to politicians than with what was right or constitutional.
