  • In the American context, the term refers to a period during which the consumption, sale, and production of alcohol were prohibited. The Prohibition period occurred between 1920 and 1933, and the legislation was amended by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1933. The Prohibition is said to have contributed to the development of the underground market, as well as racketeering activities and organized crime groups, and is said to have had a substantial effect on the alcohol industry in the United States. Such legislation still exists in certain parts of the world, where the sale, consumption, and production, of alcohol remain strictly illegal.
