1928 Vintage Prescription for Liquor During Prohibition
Out of stock
The 18th Amendment to the American Constitution outlawed the manufacture and sale of intoxicating liquors, except for medicinal purposes. This “Temperance Act” required a written prescription from a physician in order to obtain liquor. Offered here is a special federal prescription form (6″ x 7″) for liquor that was filled out by a physician and signed by a pharmacist in 1928. The prescription calls for “spirits fermenti 8 oz 1/2 oz 3 times a day.” Perhaps this “patient” had a raspy voice? The word “VOID” has been punched into the form, signifying that the order had been filled. This is an interesting piece from our prohibition days.
