1920 - The Ban: The beginning of Prohibition in the USA

Rights-Managed, Editorial

Location and time:

United States, 17-01-1920


Prohibition began on January 17, 1920, when the Eighteenth Amendment went into effect. A total of 1,520 Federal Prohibition agents (police) were given the task of enforcing the law.

At midnight on the night of January 16th, 1920, one of the personal habits and customs of most Americans suddenly came to a halt. Prohibition was meant to reduce the consumption of alcohol, seen by some as the work of the devil, and thereby reduce crime, poverty, death rates, and improve the economy and the quality of life. National prohibition of alcohol was undertaken to reduce crime and corruption, solve social problems, reduce the tax burden created by prisons and poorhouses, and improve health and hygiene in America. This, however, was undoubtedly to no avail. The Prohibition amendment of the 1920s was ineffective because it was unenforceable, it caused the explosive growth of crime, and it increased the amount of alcohol consumption.
