The Prohibition Act
The Prohibition Act was passed in 1919, before the 18th Amendment was passed. This Act was passed for Alcohol to stop and for many people ending up in Hospitals, Jails or even dead. Alcohol was ruling the states and changes the society and peoples lives. This Act represented no transportation,sale or manufacturing of Alcohol. Even though Alcohol was not allowed into home, but limited amounts of wine and hard cider were permitted to be made at home.
What they expected but turned out to be
Prohibition was supposed to lower crime and corruption, reduce social problems, lower taxes needed to support prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and hygiene in America. Instead, Alcohol became more dangerous to consume; organized crime blossomed; courts and prisons systems became overloaded; and endemic corruption of police and public officials occurred.
Where it was transported from
Many people also kept private bars to serve their guests. Large quantities of alcohol were smuggled in from Canada, overland and via the Great Lakes. Americans got it illegal alcohol by bootlegging.
