The WCTU suggested that school teachers put
half of a calfs brain in an empty jar into which
alcohol should be poured. As the color of the
brain turned from pink to gray, pupils were to be
warned that a drink of alcohol would do the same
to their brains. http//www2.potsdam.edu/alcohol-

A major prohibitionist group, the Women's
Christian Temperance Union (WCTU) taught as

drinkers die from dropsie. 11

Prohibition led to widespread disrespect for law.
New York City alone had about thirty thousand
(yes, 30,000) speakeasies. And even public
leaders flaunted their disregard for the law.
They included the Speaker of the United States
House of Representatives, who owned and operated
an illegal still.
36
In Los Angeles, a jury that had heard a
bootlegging case was itself put on trial after it
drank the evidence. The jurors argued in their
defense that they had simply been sampling the
evidence to determine whether or not it contained
alcohol, which they determined it did. However,
because they consumed the evidence, the defendant
charged with bootlegging had to be acquitted.
37
There was one way to obtain alcoholic beverages
legally during the prohibition years through a
physician's prescription, purchasing the liquor
from a pharmacy. Physicians could prescribe
distilled spirits--usually whiskey or brandy--on
government prescription forms.
