    Because Prohibition began in Wilsons administration it is often assumed that he supported it. In fact Wilson vetoed the Volstead Act which enforced Prohibition and he opposed a federal law enforcing what he thought was a personal moral issue. However after the 18th Amendment passed and it became law he defended its enforcement. Wilson supported a middle position encouraging moderation rather than a full banning of alcoholic beverages.

    prohibition is it a soluation or problem? before 1920 drinking was a problem. this was a problem because urbanashion caused people to have to fight for the last jobs and goods so they drank in exas to get away from the hard times at hand. this pushed the ratification of prohibition onward. by this law passing it also caused the upraising of organized crime such as boot legging and gang violance which lead to the 21 ammendment which ended prohibition.

    Because Prohibition began in Wilson’s administration it is often assumed that he supported it. In fact, Wilson vetoed the infamous Volstead Act which enforced Prohibition and he opposed a federal law enforcing what he thought was a personal moral issue. However, after the 18th Amendment passed and it became law he defended its enforcement. Neither a "dry" or a "wet" what Wilson supported was a middle position, sometimes referred to as “temperance” where he supported laws encouraging moderation rather than a full banning of alcoholic beverages. Wilson was himself a moderate drinker. His home had a small wine cellar and he occasionally enjoyed a glass of good Scotch in the evening, although he seems to have never drunk to excess.
