      A tiny survey

      Prohibition Community Survey

      1. What is prohibition?

      2. When was prohibition in effect?

      3. Do you feel we should ban the sale of alcohol?

      4. Do you feel we should ban the sale of cigarettes?

      5. Do you feel we should legalize marijuana?


      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

      If you feel it is easier for you to send me a message with your response feel free. I need 10 people to give me answers so...please answer them . I need your base knowledge, so please don't go look this stuff up if you don't already know it. Guessing is alright if you don't know.

      Also, this is for the U.S. If you aren't a citizen of the U.S. I think it might skew the results I need for the survey.

      Don't worry about being right or wrong for the first two questions, it isn't about that.

      I like how your own opinions show through.

      1. An attempt to control behaviour that didn't turn out that well.

      2. Sometime before WW2 in America.

      3. No.

      4. No.

      5. Yes.

      In general, I think that when there's demand, prohibition will just move supply underground. In changing behaviour rigid rules have limited power.

      Oh sorry, just read this is for the US. So skew me, and skew you very much.

      I didn't know my opinions showed through...the questions weren't written by me...

      BTW, nice answer to question one. Lol.

      1. What is prohibition?
      It is when the government bans a substance from being used by the population, making it an illegal substance.

      2. When was prohibition in effect?
      During the Great Depression to get men to stop spending their paychecks at the bar on Friday night. It was basically an attempt to keep the family together.

      3. Do you feel we should ban the sale of alcohol?
      Nope

      4. Do you feel we should ban the sale of cigarettes?
      Yes

      5. Do you feel we should legalize marijuana?
      Yes. Hellz yeah!

      Not to be nitpicky, but why ban cigarettes and not alcohol?

      Giving yourself lung cancer pales in the deaths of alcohol-related fatalities. The former is suicide, the latter accidental murder more often than not.

      I should have gone into detail.

      Don't ban liquor. It can be enjoyed responsibly. We just need stricter regulations to prevent the trajedies it can cause.

      1. What is prohibition?
      The banning of the sale and use of alcohol.

      2. When was prohibition in effect?
      Judging by common rum-running cars, early 20s-late 30s.

      3. Do you feel we should ban the sale of alcohol?
      No, ineffective and will fail. Needs greater restriction, I know too many people who lost friends and family to it.

      4. Do you feel we should ban the sale of cigarettes?
      No, ineffective and will fail. Ween society off it first, out right ban will meet too great of a resistance.

      5. Do you feel we should legalize marijuana?
      No, no personal experience with its use but know others who do. Leaning more towards no due to the people I have seen change after using it for awhile, including some friends moving up to heroin and cocaine.

      (If I remember correctly...)

      1. What is prohibition?

      It was a period of time where it was prohibited to make, sell, and dispense alcohol. It was a failed attempt to prevent bad habits among the American public.

      2. When was prohibition in effect?

      1930s. I don't remember exactly, but that sounds about right. Women had the right to vote and largely contributed to the formation of the law(s) that went into effect.

      3. Do you feel we should ban the sale of alcohol?

      No.

      4. Do you feel we should ban the sale of cigarettes?

      Absolutely, yes.

      5. Do you feel we should legalize marijuana?

      No.

      1. Ban of alchohal in the U.S.
      2. 1920s
      3. No
      4. No, but there should be more regulation in some respect. People should be more aware of the chemicals in ciggarettes, and the fact that they can get certain brands that don't contain nearly as many chemicals, like american spirits. I smoked for 2 years before I found this out. I know it hasn't been proven in any way, but it seems kinda obvious that tobacco with a bunch of chemicals in it is gonna be worse for you than organic tobacco.

      There should also be some regulation of all the God damn propaganda that pushes for a ban. It's completely ridiculous right now. Substance bans never work. Why is america so LD?

      Also, cigarettes should be allowed to advertise. I mean, politicians are allowed to, and they are much more detrimental to our society.

      EDIT: I'm looking at this list of chemicals in ciggarettes. Theres some weird shit on it like chocolate, carrot oil, cognac. I don't know if it's accurate but it's funny.

      5. We should definetly legalize marijuana. I think this is the main cause of drug problems in this country. If good cannabis was readily availiable, people would be much less likely to use pills and other more dangerous drugs. If it weren't for drug prohibition we wouldn't have crack or crystaly meth. Literrally. Neither of these would have been invented if it weren't for drug prohibition. Legalize it.

      157 is a prime number. The next prime is 163 and the previous prime is 151, which with 157 form a sexy prime triplet. Taking the arithmetic mean of those primes yields 157, thus it is a balanced prime.

      How scientific. I'm sure that the inclusion of questions about prohibition and the legality of cigarettes and alcohol in a poll about the illegality of pot is purely coincidental. It's like whoever wrote those questions thinks he can trick people into agreeing with him.

      Silly poll, but I agree with whoever wrote it. Legalize pot, legalize EVERYTHING. The government should not be able to tell us what to do with our own bodies.

      3. Do you feel we should ban the sale of alcohol? No.

      4. Do you feel we should ban the sale of cigarettes? No, But more strict non-smoking area codes would be nice.

      5. Do you feel we should legalize marijuana? Yes, in that it would be easier to regulate that way, there are ways of making things legal yet inaccessible to the public. Plus, the medicinal marijuana controversy would go down to only slightly more relevance than medicinal morphine.
      That good enough?

      1) Prohibition is the illegalization of alcohaul in the US.

      2) Around the 20's I think...we just learned about this in school.

      3) While I don't drink, and I hate being around drunk people, no, it would be too much of a hassle.

      4) Again, I don't smoke, and I don't like it when people smoke near me, but no, it would be too much of a hassle.

      5) Hell no.

      Thank you to everyone who has taken the poll so far.
