Many people believed that the experiment wouldn't work, that it was an inappropriate Federal intrusion into the rights of individual states, that it was an inappropriate intrusion into the private lives of citizens, that it would deprive governments of tax revenue, that it would destroy legitimate businesses and the jobs they supported, etc.
