Prohibition: Scofflaws
Scofflaws
Season 1  |  Episode 2  |  The History Channel  |  June 11, 2017

On January 17, 1920, Prohibition goes into effect. Enacted in part to promote a more orderly, law-abiding America, Prohibition has precisely the opposite effect. Doctors and pharmacists, federal agents and local lawmen, rabbis and funeral directors all figure out ways to make money by getting around the law, from 'Satan's Seat' in New York City to Seattle, Washington, where a former cop becomes the Good Bootlegger.
