In her book The War on Alcohol (2015), Lisa McGirr remarked that the current war on drugs "is the step child of alcohol Prohibition"; that is to say that narcotics in the 1920s was transported along the same distribution canals that were dug by many of the same underworld bosses and it's trafficking was challenged by many of the same law enforcement officers who attempted to enforce the 18th Amendment. This article from 1922 reported that (at least for the first three years of Prohibition) narcotics use across the United States remained at it's pre-1919 levels; this is in contrast to a Wikipedia account stating that narcotics addiction rose 44.6% during the Prohibition era. The same year this column appeared the Federal Narcotics control Board was established; eight years later President Hoover's Federal Narcotics Bureau would kick-in.
