The Eighteenth Amendment banned making, transporting, and selling alcoholic beverages throughout the United States. While proponents hoped prohibiting alcohol would significantly reduce crime and other societal ills, the resulting black market fostered organized crime. The amendment was repealed by the Twenty-first Amendment in 1933.

The Amendment did not expressly prohibit the use of intoxicating liquors as a beverage, but without this use the things prohibited would not exist. On the other hand, if the direct prohibitions of the Amendment were effective there could be no use for beverage purposes except as to the limited simply on hand when the Amendment became operative.
