A Bright Idea
Uncle Sam Motivational soberity poster.
Many people were for "The Noble Experiment" or in other words Prohibition. Which would ban the production of alcohol in the United States. Apart from no longer being able to produce alcohol legally in the United States, the transportation of alcohol would also be illegal. Anyone caught with alcohol would be sent to prison, or so they thought this would happen, the reality was very different. No longer were people able to drink in the comfort of a bar. This idea seemed brilliant to the United States and some of its inhabitants at the time.
