Center for Alcohol Policy Essay Contest

Center for Alcohol Policy Essay Contest

The Center is now accepting entries for its Ninth Annual Essay ContestThe essay contest is intended to foster debate, analysis and examination of state alcohol regulation.


“The 21st Amendment repealed Prohibition and put control over alcohol regulation directly in the hands of the states. Though each state’s alcohol control policies are unique, they all include distinct regulations for different types of alcohol. Why are various types of alcohol regulated in different ways? Should they be?”
