The 18th Amendment has been passed! Now the manufacture and sale of alcohol in America is prohibited.
Hey, is that alcohol?! You're under arrest!
Whew! It's true that I'm enforcing the amendment, but even I need to relax once in a while!
The speakeasy's down this alley. You'll get your drink, but you gotta stay quiet about it.
You got the goods?
Good job. The money's in the back.
Yeah, got 12 kegs of beer waiting. The police haven't caught on yet.
Prohibition did not have much of an effect on the alcohol consumption rate in America. Alcohol was now being smuggled, opening up another way for crime to flourish. Today, the 18th Amendment has been lifted by the 21st Amendment, and people are still drinking at lower rates than before the Prohibition.
