Will the booze ban work at Lower Brule?

There was some great reporting Sunday by Steve Young of the Argus Leader about a new ban on alcohol sales within the boundaries of the Lower Brule Indian Reservation in central South Dakota.

Understandably, there are a lot of varying opinions about whether the ban will curb alcohol abuse on the reservation. If it works like the alcohol ban on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in southwestern South Dakota, it will just encourage people to go off the reservation for their alcohol and will drastically improve the business of the bars and liquor stores closest to the reservation.
