Rarely are the answers so obvious to the problems facing our county and state. Two simple solutions would solve two looming problems-privatization of the state liquor stores and the lack of prison space.
Though it was tried before, the time is now ripe for a return to prohibition! No more liquor stores to debate and no more DUIs. We could then use our current prison to house felons and domestic abusers.
Throw in the legalization of marijuana and once again there would be a decline in the prison population. No more minor drug incarcerations. It would also reduce domestic abuse since no one would put down the potato chips to get off the couch to beat their wife!!
What could be more obvious?
