Essentially all of he United States problems are based upon alcohol. Alcohol causes crime and corruption, social problems, high taxes needed to support prisons and poorhouses, and lastly Americans health and hygiene just don't seem to matter when alcohol is present which causes excessive death and disease.

These problems are all going to diminish due to "Prohibition" or the act of prohibiting alcohol. Prohibition was added into the constitution as the 18th amendment on January 16th, 1920. The United States will greatly benefit from new law in several ways. Crime rates will have a tremendous drop, lowered taxes, and Americans health and hygiene will greatly improve.

Alcohol & Today
 The 18th amendment or prohibition law was ended on January 17th, 1933. Today alcohol is widley used throughout the world,although laws vary from country to country. Also in the United States alone there are currently an estimated 11 million 5 hundred deaths every 13 years compaired the 10 million people who died from drinking, during the prohibition period (1920- 1933). This shows wether alcohol is legal or illegal there are going to be problems that the government cannot solve alone.
