In honor of the anniversary of the repeal of the 18th Amendment on December 5th 1933 (otherwise known as prohibition):
“During National Prohibition in the USA (1921-1933), the only way you could buy alcohol legally was from a drug store, with a doctor’s prescription. This was tightly controlled by the U.S. Treasury Department, which was in charge of Prohibition enforcement. ”
Thats right folks. In those days, you could get a prescription for whiskey.
