National Prohibition ended on the 17th of January 1933, after failing it’s aim to, “reduce crime and corruption, solve social problems, reduce the tax burdens on prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and hygiene in America”1. Although it caused some positive social change and aided the economy, it created large problems in health. The biggest problem was the creation of a new criminal underworld, which by 1933 was making so much money that the government decided it could be taking that it in taxes, so called it to a halt. Due to this huge criminal network, the police force had a lot more problems created for them as well. The original aim of Prohibition was to “reduce crime and corruption.1” The idea behind this was that by decreasing alcohol consumption, the amount of drunken crimes would go down, and decrease the crime rate.
Medmira was distributing rapid HIV tests in Canada, United States, South Africa, Latin America and China, and selling them to hospitals, pharmacies and aid groups. One of the focuses of MedMira was to expand to Over-the-Counter market as there happened some changes that made it possible to consider this attempt: * New infections were happening and about 3.1 million people were dying from HIV. This adds a higher preoccupation to the government and specialists on the health sector and pressure to arrange a solution. * During the 80’s, there were few available treatment and when people knew they had the virus they would see it as a death sentence. Nowadays this idea is disappearing as technology is more advanced, it is a “more manageable illness” and there is an increase of information available about HIV.

Hilgartner and Bosk define a social problem as “a putative condition or situation that actors label as a “problem” in the arenas of public discourse and action, defining it as harmful and framing its definition in particular ways”. (1.Hillgartner and Bosk 1988) In 1979 the Soviet Union invaded Afghanistan engaging in a brutal 10 year conflict. This kick started the Afghan opium trade. Opium was sold all over the world to fund the fight against the Soviets, but the main customer of the opium were the Russians themselves.

By the 1990s, the sheer weight of evidence had forced major tobacco companies to admit that their products are both harmful and addictive. Many governments have substantially increased taxes on tobacco in order to discourage smoking, and often to alleviate the economic costs of smoking-related illness. However, while smoking has declined amongst some groups, it has increased amongst others - particularly young women. Meanwhile restrictions on the industry in the developed world have seen a new emphasis on developing nations, and new markets. Key questions for this debate are: Is it the proper role of government to legislate to protect citizens from the harmful effects of their own lifestyle decisions?
