Prohibition in the 1920’s Prohibition took place because of The Volstead Act which was passed on October 28th 1919. The Volstead Act implied that any beverage that was over 0.5% alcohol by volume was illegal. The Volstead Act also indicated that the ownership of any item designed to manufacture liquor was illegal. This act created particular fines and jail sentences for violating prohibition (Feldman, “Prohibition: It Economic and Industrial Aspects”). The ratification of the 18th amendment in the U.S Constitution was officially passed January 16th of 1920 and went into effect on January 17th of 1920.
