Former Drug Czar Advisor Paul Chabot: Alcohol Prohibition "Actually Worked"

|

Last Friday former Drug Enforcement Administration analyst and current member of Law Enforcement Against Prohibition Sean Dunagan debated former ONDCP advisor and Coalition for a Drug Free California founder Paul Chabot on The Young Turks. The segment is worth watching for a couple of reasons: Dunagan does a good job of modeling sensibility, and Chabot's zealotry is sort of hilarious. But best of all is Chabot's assertion, at just after the six-minute mark, that alcohol prohibition "actually worked." 

Chabot's ONDCP resume, according to his website, reads as follows: "Paul…was selected for the Nation's prestigious Presidential Management Fellowship Program working for the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy. He was promoted to White House Senior Advisor for Law Enforcement, Justice and Drug Control Programs. During his nearly 6-years in the White House, he completed two rotational assignments, one with the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles targeting methamphetamine production and one later with the U.S. State Department Office of Inspector General, assessing counter-terrorism and counter-narcotics programs."
