Tonight at midnight will be exactly 100 years since Prohibition began in the United States. "The noble experiment" went horribly awry, ending up as one of the most ill-advised and poorly enforced acts of legislation in the history of the United States.

Despite a mild decrease in alcohol consumption by citizens, it was all in all a complete failure.
