Prohibition

PROalarmed at the drinking behavior of Americans, and they were concerned that there was a culture of drink among some sectors of the population that, with continuing immigration from Europe, was spreading.

PROHIBITIONFrom 1920 to 1933, the United States prohibited the manufacturing, storage in barrels, bottles, transportation and sale of alcohol including alcoholic beverages. Prohibition was enforced much more strongly in areas where the population was sympathetic to the legislation–mainly rural areas and small towns–and much more loosely in urban areas. Despite very early signs of success, including a decline in arrests for drunkenness and a reported 30 percent drop in alcohol consumption, those who wanted to keep drinking found ever-more inventive ways to do it.

AGAINSTIts Not right to take away these beasic rights!
