Leading up to 18th Amendment, a lot of emphasis was placed on alcohol consumption as the root of crime and problems in society.
Leading Up to Prohibition
Even in the 1800s, blame was placed on alcohol for disrupting communities. Fueled by religious fervor, a version of “Prohibition Light” was enacted in places such as Massachusetts, Maine, and Ohio. In 1838, a Massachusetts law prohibited the sale of spirits in limited quantities. In 1846, Maine passed a law prohibiting alcohol statewide (it was repealed two years later). In the late 1800s, Ohio attempted to prohibit the sale of alcohol when the Women’s Christian Temperance Union joined forces with the Anti-Saloon League.

You remember the scene: Lois is hanging from the open door of a helicopter that is itself dangling over the side of the Daily Planet. Superman, protector of Truth, Justice, and the American Way come to her rescue. As he sets her (and the helicopter) down safely back on the landing pad, he gives a wink and tries to comfort her by saying, “Well, I certainly hope this little incident hasn’t put you off flying, miss. Statistically speaking, of course, it’s still the safest way to travel.”
Between my full-time job and my “part-time” dedicated hobbies (believe me, when your friends tell you that joining their band “won’t take up too much of your time,” they’re wrong, and you shouldn’t believe a word out of their musical mouths), I don’t have nearly enough time to head out to the mountains as much as I’d like.
