Read the\u00A0supporting details\u00A0then answer the following question. From the passage, you can infer that the 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was put into action to:

A Prohibit the consumption of alcohol

The first sentence of the second paragraph states that the 18th Amendment prohibited the manufacture, transport, and sale of intoxicating liquor (alcohol). Although the Amendment does not directly state that an individual may not consume alcohol, you can infer that since it was against the law to make it, sell it, or transport it; individuals probably were not permitted to consume it.
