NOVELTIES AND SIGNS
In 1916, two propositions appeared on the ballot in California to prohibit alcohol in the state of California. Proposition 1, if it had been approved, would have prohibited the manufacture, sale, gift or transportation of intoxicating liquors, except for "medicinal, sacramental, scientific and mechanical" purposes. Proposition 2 would have defined liquor, and then prohibited its use. Neither of these propositions were passed.
