The people in the distilling industry had many arguments as to why prohibition was a bad idea. The problem was that they did not do a good job getting their message to the public. This talk will focus on the arguments against prohibition made by the distillers and then their arguments for the repeal of prohibition. There were many valid arguments as to why prohibition does not work. Legally, the enforcement of prohibition laws is impossible without an army of enforcement officers. Economically, the cost of the enforcement and the loss of tax revenue are too much to endure. E. H. Taylor, Jr., George Garvin Brown, J.M. Atherton and others used these arguments and others as they fought to protect their livelihood and Kentucky's signature industry
