The Wickersham Commission Report on Alcohol Prohibition - 1930


The material which has been brought before the Commission has convinced me that adequate enforcement of the Eighteenth Amendment and the National Prohibition Act is impossible without the support of a much larger proportion or our population than it now commands. Moreover, the conditions which exist today in respect to enforcement and which, in my opinion, can be modified only slightly by improvements in administration, tend to undermine not only respect for law but more fundamental conceptions of personal integrity and decency. For these reasons, I am one of the members of the Commission who favor an immediate attempt at change. As I still hope that federal regulation of the liquor traffic may prove more effective than that of the states, I favor revision of the amendment rather than its repeal.


Washington, D.C.,
