Movement towards Repeal
Problems of prohibition seemed to occur in other countries also. For example, Canada, in 1919 Prohibition was soon repealed because of economic pressures, so there were opportunities for Canada to sell liquor to the United States.
The other problem there was was that more Americans tried to repeal Prohibition, the reasons were that the number of people who repealed got larger and more joined in. Most of the Americans were happy at the old saloon system. They thought that even the law protected their families from alcohol, in the other hand the husbands lost the individual freedom from drinking and enjoying themselves in the saloons.
Whenever people felt they should or could repeal this law, the annual per capita consumption rose. Some people were complaining that alcohol was getting too expensive when it became illegal, if they could get back into the old system, so the prize would go down and the people would feel safe to drink alcohol.
