10 Crazy Ways Prohibition Influenced America

2640 ratings | 91299 views
Well before the 1900s, a temperance movement had been slowly gaining steam, powered by many in the Bible Belt who felt that drinking alcohol led to an increase in immorality, and also that it was generally sinful in their book. With the help of World War I and a little bit of luck, the temperance movement managed to prohibit the sale of alcohol nationally. →Subscribe for new videos every day! https://www.youtube.com/user/toptenznet?sub_confirmation=1 Find more lists at: http://www.toptenz.net Entertaining and educational top 10 lists from TopTenzNet!

A few extra things: A) In heat of Depression, when Prohibition repealed, you had 100,000 quickly unemployed, trained Liquor Control agents, experienced in American law enforcement techniques, on the market. Some of these individuals went to work for the very mobsters they were pursuing, honing organized crime activity, that affected situation well into 1970's. (Things like how murders, highjackings, extortion, etc. were investigated and prosecuted aiding the organized criminal in how to beat the system.) B) Huge amounts of illegal money used, mostly in big cities, to influence politicians and steal elections. C) Huge amounts of money for organized crime to hire muscle and affect trade unions. (Jimmy Hoffa, etc.) D) Huge amounts of money that affected 1920's building boom, in part, a place for the upper tiered criminal to place money. (While not the full cause of the depression, some economists list the higher competition/lower profiting (with less amounts of investible illegal liquor cash) in late '20 as one factor of cash flow issues affecting aftermath of 1929 market crash. E) Increased value of wood pulp industry. Fresh off 'banning it' mindset, it was easy for Hearst and other journalists to vilify hemp (marijuana,) getting it strictly defined, and eliminating hemp-pulp's competition to wood pulp, thus increasing the value of the wood pulp industry. (As a matter of reality, agricultural grade hemp ('ditch weed') of virtually no recreational value, yet categorized the same as the strongest recreational grade hemps, showing it is the generic hemp plant, not the affect, target of legislation.)

The Prohibition Party still nominates candidates for U.S. President & Vice President every four years. In 2012, out of the 27 pairs of presidential & vice presidential candidates that were on the ballot in at least one state, not counting write-ins or Nevada's "None of These Candidates", the Prohibition Party finished 27th in the nationwide popular vote.

Prohibition will never work. I always thought that Temperance workers were kind of crazy. Now that I am older, I have been rear ended twice by drunks while stopped at a traffic light, my best friend was killed by a drunk driver almost cutting him in half while he was on the shoulder of the freeway checking his trailer, and I volunteered 2 years at a homeless shelter, finding out that 75%+ are homeless because of alcohol. I now see where they got their zeal from. Their desire for a better life for all Americans was admirable. Their solution was unworkable. And, unfortunately, I don't know what the answer is.

You forgot that it kinda led to the war on drugs. Although states were restricting the sale of cannabis before prohibition had started but when it was coming to an end, the federal government began to look into cannabis usage and in 1937, it had placed an excise tax which had effectively banned the sale at the federal level. And from there, it escalated.

Cunard and White Star lines and other European lines could not serve alcohol within the five mile limit of our shores, but once beyond those points, headed to Europe they would open up their liquor bars for the passengers.

Most people think about USA when they hear about prohibition of Alcohol but several countries did something similar in the western world (oddly enough, mostly Protestant countries). Norway f. ex forbade all spirits, Beer and wine was still legal but highly regulated from aprox. 1919 to 1926. Many counties and towns had their own prohibition laws even after the nationwide ban was revoked (F. Ex Haugesund had a citiwide ban on alcohol to c.a. 1960)
William Thomas Ramey (6 months ago)
One of the worst ideas ever considered: attempting to use the law to force people to cease a behavior that had, up til then, been perfectly legal. This gave rise to powerful organized crime groups, imprisonment of otherwise law abiding people and a huge rise in theft and violence resulting from the buying and selling in the black market. Yet we still suffer these same issues, and for the exact same reasons. Prohibition still exists: the prohibition of drugs. It is easily arguable that the prohibition of drugs has caused much more harm due to the power of gangs gained by the black market in drugs, violence caused by the buying, selling and fight for market share by those gangs, the imprisonment of otherwise perfectly law abiding people and deaths due to the lack of health and safety oversight of drugs sold on the black market than all the harm possibly caused by the use of those drugs ever. If every drug from marijuana to heroin were legalized, the power of gangs and cartels would evaporate along with all the violence and corruption associated with them. Prison overcrowding would be a thing of the past. Theft committed by users would almost completely cease. Overdose due to unknown additives and unregulated strength would virtually disappear. Government revenue would improve dramatically thanks to the new taxability of drug sales and the cessation of expenditures enforcing an unwinnable "war" on drugs. As exemplified by pre-prohibition useage statistics plus those from the few countries that have legalized all or nearly all, drugs, use would not jump dramatically. A small portion of the monies spent on enforcement and incarceration could be redirected to education and rehabilitation. As long as society continues to buy into the fear mongering of certain parts of the population and continue to remain ignorant of the lessons learned from the prohibition of alcohol, we will all continue to suffer from the ludicrous policy of a war on drugs.

I live in a Southern state that just recently, in the last 20-30 years or so, allowed liquor by the drink in bars. Otherwise you had to take a bottle with you and "drink" from it. It's just as bad as not legalizing recreational drugs and profiting from the taxes the country can make off it, lol.

For years I have doubted the legality of Prohibition. Thousands of men were unable to vote on it. They were away in college or in the military!! WW I didn't end until 28 June 1919 AD!! US Army units were in Russia fighting with the White Russians in 1920 AD. The law was passed before FDR invented the absentee ballot! Wyoming was one of the few places women could vote (1869 AD).

You can draw a direct line form the emergence of the temperance movement back to the Civil War, and its pretty basic as to why. Large numbers of veterans suffering from very real and painful physical wounds and sufferers of what we would now call PTSD (which society at the time called cowardice). With only opiates and alcohol to numb or control physical pain and mental anguish, it is no surprise that large numbers of veterans became addicted destroying themselves and their families. The impact on societal structure, particularly in the South, was pretty severe (CSA Vets were not provided services or pension obviously--except for a grave marker allowed in 1929). The temperance movement is a reaction to that damage. Much is often made of the so-called Bible Belt and its moral strictures leading to a temperance reactionary movement, and perhaps that is so, but then again perhaps having large number of alcoholic vets receiving no treatment or support might be just as significant. It's also noteworthy that the FDA is established (1906) during the emergence of this movement, also a reaction to the wide-spread distribution of some fairly strong and addictive drugs to the same veteran and general population. Very well done Simon, another interesting and thought provoking video from your team.

What’s crazy is for at least a large part of prohibition while it was illegal to have sell or drink alcohol it wasn’t illegal to be drunk which is funny to me. And also I’m more modern time it’s still illegal to make and sell moonshine in some states but it’s not illegal to just make it for your own personal use I actually know a man who had a moonshine steel in his back yard and had nothing hiding it but he wasn’t breaking any laws because he wasn’t selling it which I think is hilarious haha
Ryan Hodges (5 months ago)
Jackie Lenarz yeah that is true but sense the guy I know wasn’t selling it there wasn’t anything that could be done about it at least that’s how the law works where I live it could be different state to state. Like that’s perfectly legal here but in Georgia he might have had to get a permit to do that or it could just be outright illegal all together. But I understand what your saying. And he did somewhat pay taxes on it because he had to buy all of the ingredients and equipment to make it.

eegernades: Democrats are still the party of KKK, Blacks make up 1:10 Americans, yet account for 1:3 abortions, a statistic that pleases racists, Klansmen and Hollywood elitist. (There are more black aborted in NYC than born!) The common myth of "Nixon's 'Southern Strategy" fails to recognize the 3rd party George Wallace effect in 1968, and that most southern states didn't go red until the 1990's. Hillary Clinton's mentor, Virginia Sen Byrd, was a Grand Kleegal (whatever that is) in KKK. Hillary's hero, Planned Parenthood founder Margaret Sanger, ('to control the lessor races'), was a favorite and speaker to KKK. Look at sad status of urban American Blacks, 55 years victims of former Klansman and former US President Lyndon Johnson's, 'Great Society Program' that he boasted 'will keep them n------rs voting Democrat for 200 years.' and I can go on and on. Suggest you research Blaxit movement, Black Americans who've awoken to the true results of the Democrat Party-the historic party of KKK.

Weird thing is I'm from Wisconsin, they stop selling beer at 12 am, or 9 PM depending on location. Moved to Tennessee a few years back into a county which had been a dry county not too long before, they sell beer until 3 am here. It's awesome for me, but found it a bit strange. However they do treat wine like hard liquor, not selling on Sunday or certain holidays and stop selling that at 9 pm
