Another coffee calamity! How much more can we take?
Another Coffee Calamity has struck and people are outraged!

Due to the alarming number of people worldwide addicted to coffee, the United Nations has announced that research has declared it a drug. After much deliberation, the American government has decided from here on out, coffee is an illegal substance. Much like prohibition, the buying, selling, and growing of coffee is now prohibited and if caught, punishable by law.


Write a story 500-1500 words about what happens in a world where coffee is suddenly illegal. IS coffee as harmful and addictive as the government now claims? Will the people rise up and overthrow the government over this absurd new law? Will rehab centers be overcrowded with people having coffee withdraws? Tell us what happens!


Stay within the word limit of 500-1500 words.
