Even During PROHIBITION the United States GOVERNMENT Regularly POISONED ALCOHOL
Allegations have been made on many occasions that the government used to add poison to alcohol in order to discourage individuals from drinking during the time of Prohibition.
This same government did take quite a few measures/steps to guarantee that the populace did not consume alcohol; nonetheless, we will never be in a position to determine whether or not the verisimilitude underlying this assertion is accurate.
Now, although it’s possible that the government didn’t go so far as to intentionally poison the alcohol, you can be sure that they made sure industrial alcohols had enough harmful compounds.
According to an article published by USA Today, the allegations that the federal government had been secretly adding poisonous chemicals to industrial alcohol, essentially polluting the majority of the future supply of illegally produced alcohol, are completely correct.
