This Center for Alcohol Policy video explains the origin of today’s alcohol regulatory system, which works to balance alcohol control with an orderly and competitive marketplace.
The video describes Center’s republication of the book Toward Liquor Control, which outlined how states could safely sell and serve alcohol following the repeal of Prohibition, and how the book is still helping shape policy today. It also contrasts the effective American regulatory system with the United Kingdom, which has deregulated alcohol over several decades and now faces myriad alcohol-related problems as a result.
The Center for Alcohol Policy is a 501c(3) organization whose mission is to educate policy makers, regulators and the public about alcohol, its uniqueness and regulation. By conducting sound and scientific-based research and implementing initiatives that will maintain the appropriate state-based regulation of alcohol, the Center promotes safe and responsible consumption, fights underage drinking and drunk driving and informs key entities about the effects of alcohol consumption.
