Prohibition was a nationwide ban on the production, importation, transportation, and sale of Alcoholic Beverages in the United States from 1920 to 1933. It was intended to reduce crime, corruption, and societal issues associated with alcohol consumption, but ultimately led to an increase in illegal activities and black market operations.
