It was huge...prohibition, in my opinion, is what made the biggest change to society. Prohibition created the speakeasies, the mafia (especially Al Capone), it spiked crime rates, kicked off jazz, flapper dresses, and countless numbers of other things.Prohibition, most of all, taught the U.S. government a big lesson. Prohibition created tons of problems. It made people feel rebellious, it made life exciting, prohibition made people want to drink. Bootleggers would transport alcohol and sell it. Alcohol could be mixed with dangerous substances since the government wasn't regulating its production. Any old guy with a couple acres of backwoods land could make his own moonshine. Police were told to prevent it...but plenty of officers didn't support prohibition and would drink alcohol. The government lost a lot of money trying to fix the problem but also because they couldn't tax alcohol anymore.Prohibition was what created the mystery, the excitement, and rebel-without-a-cause feeling in everyone's hearts that lived during the roaring 20's.In the end, the 18th Amendment was the only amendment removed from the Constitution.
