This chapter discusses alcohol consumption and policies after the end of prohibition. The US emerged from national prohibition with relatively liberal alcohol policies. These varied from state to state, but fewer states opted for prohibition after 1933 than had done so before prohibition was implemented on a national basis. However, in countries such as Norway, Sweden, the Soviet Union, Finland, and Canada, the state took over direct control of alcohol retailing after the repeal of prohibition so as to regulate alcohol consumption. Even countries that had not had prohibition policies were more restrictive when it came to alcohol during most of the twentieth century than they had been before.

Keywords:   alcohol consumption, alcohol policy, prohibition, United States, Norway, Sweden, Soviet Union, Finland, Canada
