1928 Vintage Prescription for Liquor During Prohibition

Out of stock

SKU: 37282 Category:


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.
