    Prohibition basically caused all of these things. When alcohol was made illegal, people immediately began a black market for alcohol. That black market included bootlegging, organized crime, and gang wars. The 21st amendment legalized alcohol and ended prohibition, because the government realized that organized crime in the US was soaring because of prohibition, and they couldn't really successfully control whether or not people drank alcohol. You should probably look up the definitions of bootlegging, organized crime, and Chicago gang wars, though ... just so that you have some specifics to accompany the big picture of how prohibition impacted the US. :)
