Raise a glass to Prohibition

One hundred years ago this month, Colorado became one of the first state’s in the country to legally ban alcohol, four years before national Prohibition was implemented. Although local leaders were initially all for Prohibition, they later came to realize, as people all over the country did, that it caused far more problems than it solved.

Here’s a link to a column I wrote in 2014 about Prohibition.
