The Prohibition Movement, an effort to ban alcohol consumption, began in Ohio in the late nineteenth century with the Woman's Christian Temperance Movement and the formation of the Anti-Saloon League in 1893. Although the issue was on the ballot several times, voters did not approve prohibition until 1918. In 1920, the Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. constitution passed, making prohibition the law of the United States. It was repealed in 1933 with the passage of the Twenty-First Amendment.
