Just 17 days into 2120, the government of new city enacted a nation wide ban on the production and sale of alcoholic beverages under amendment 5,285 of constitution of new city.
It was a time of great change and upheaval. Many people were opposed to the ban on alcohol, and there was a lot of illegal activity associated with it. However, others saw it as a way to improve society and make it more orderly. Despite the challenges, life went on and people found ways to enjoy themselves without alcohol.
There were a few key ways that people coped with prohibition. First, many people simply made their own alcohol at home. This was known as “bootlegging” and was technically illegal, but it was widely tolerated. Second, people found legal loopholes that allowed them to purchase and consume alcohol. For example, some restaurants were allowed to serve “medicinal” alcohol, and people would often take advantage of this loophole. Finally, many people simply went to speakeasies, which were illegal bars that served alcohol.
Despite the challenges, many people look back on prohibition as a positive time in history. They believe that it improved society by reducing crime and promoting order. Others simply enjoyed the challenge of getting around the law and experiencing all that prohibition had to offer. Whichever side of the issue you fall on, it is undeniable that prohibition was a significant time in history.
