The ban of transportation, production, sale and importation of alcohol worldwide was commonly known as the Prohibition. This occured in from 1920 - 1933 and was difficult to impose. The reasons for the ban of alcohol were because of the national mood, religion, practical side of it and because there were questions if it was right or not. The national mood was a reason because the society was saying it was bad for people's health. It was also spoken that drinking alcohol was against god and his rules. The ban of alcohol would be practical because it would boost the supplies of grains they needed in their everyday lives. Many people thought it was wrong to drink alcohol and enjoy themselves whilst other people were fighting at war.
