To this day you have to hide alcohol in paperbags in public, so prohibition has never really ended completely and puritanism is as alive as it has always been.

With the end of prohibition should have come a specific extra tax on alcohol where all raised funds would be devoted to an educational campaign on the harms of ingesting rotted plant juice into your body.

Prohibition didn't stop people from selling, buying, producing and consuming alcohol. It's just as much a failure as the War on Drugs.
