Vice City

Government Regulation of Alcohol, Cigarettes, and Drugs

In this new On Demand series professors Peter Jaworski, Aeon Skoble and Daniel D’Amico will take you on a journey into the world of government regulation of all things vices. You’ll explore how government deregulation of craft beers has helped reshape the entire industry and how alcohol laws in Virginia actually do the opposite of what they were intended! On the cigarette front the series will demonstrate the folly of anti-smoking laws and how they curb individual freedom.

Finally, you’ll explore some unlikely outcomes from drug prohibition – namely the engineering of increased potency in each toke! If the absurd world of the government vice regulation is something you’d like to wrap your head around then this 10-part On Demand series should be right up your back alley.
