The Detroit Mob & The Purple Gang english documentary part 2

Published on Jun 29, 2020
Detroit was a predecessor to Prohibition,[1] because Michigan adopted a state law, the Damon Act of 1916, which prohibited liquor effective in 1917.[2] Henry Ford, who owned the River Rouge plant, was a proponent in advocating a sober workforce. Due to Detroit's convenient proximity to Canada and Ohio, several bootleggers and individuals traveled toward Toledo to obtain booze;[2] judges took a lenient view of offenders, and in 1919 the Damon Act was declared unconstitutional
