It was impossible to enforce. Criminal elements took over the industry, which lead to violence and corruption. Politicians, judges and local law enforcement were easily corrupted and tended to thwart the efforts of federal law enforcement officials. Many Americans did not believe in prohibition and/or the temperance movement.
