This was written in the context of global warmening at Muck and Mystery, but applies to any form of prohibition - alcohol and drugs included:

One of the best indications that the prohibitionist agenda is intellectually, ethically and aesthetically bankrupt is that proponents have taken refuge in moral arguments. They skip right over debate of what is right and wrong, assume that their views are right, and claim a moral duty to do what they claim is right. Those who dispute the rightness of these behaviors can then be demonized as immoral heretics.
