The Culture of the Prohibition and Bootlegging
During Prohibition there were speakeasies and it made the alcohol underworld. It became the model for organized crime and many people were illegally drinking. Speakeasies got their name because they wanted people to keep quiet about the alcohol that
they were serving. They didn’t want people to find out about the places that served alcohol so a system of secret bars and such was created along with many ways to prevent the law from interfering in their social/partying lives.
