Prohibition was the banning of alcohol, or in other words Volstead Alcohol, and was a result of the Women's Group WCTU (Women's Christian Temperance Union).In order to make Prohibition official, Temperance movements occurred so that information could be spread about the benefits of Volstead Alcohol. As a result of this movement, Things like Rum Running began as well as mobs and gangs (Al Capone). Further, racing became a popular activity which turned into NASCAR. Which means that in a way, women created both mobs and NASCAR. Prohibition was in place until 1933 in the USA (In Canada it ended in the early 1920's).
