    PROHIBITION? Prohibition, "The Noble Experiment", was a great and genius idea on paper, but did not go as planned. With illegal activities still increasing and bootlegging at its all time high, it was no wonder the idea crumbled. Could they have revised the law to make it more effective? If so, would the law be in place today, and how would that have changed our lives today? Although it was brief, Prohibition will remain a huge part of America's history. Completely illegalizing the production an...

    Prohibition, which was also known as The Noble Experiment, lasted in America from 1920 until 1933. There are quite a few results of this experiment: innocent people suffered; organized crime grew into an empire; the police, courts, and politicians became increasingly corrupt; disrespect for the law grew; and the per capita consumption of the prohibited substance-alcohol-increased dramatically, year by year. These results increased each of the thirteen years of this Noble Experiment, and they nev...

In 1919 the Volstead Act defined as "intoxicating" all beverages containing more than 0.5 percent alcohol, which then became illegal once the Eighteenth Amendment went into effect in 1920.

  • National Prohibition Of Alcohol
    1,804 words
    Prohibition, as defined in Webster's Dictionary, is the legal ban on the sale and manufacture of intoxicating drink. In the United States, it became a movement designed to reduce drinking and its associated ills by eliminating the businesses that manufactured, distributed, and sold alcoholic beverages [7]. Prohibition did not achieve its aim. Instead, it added to the problems it was intended to solve, as seen through the periods in history when such bans have been in force, as well as, the polit...
