Attached on the right is a magazine article from the Prohibition era that concerned the dangers of black market liquor in the United States in 1922:

"When you drink bootleg the chances are better than nine out of ten that you are drinking rank poison."

"This is not the statement issued either by Prohibitionists to discourage drinking, or by a Anti-Prohibitionist to show what Prohibition has brought us to. It is the conclusion of a large newspaper service, which had it's men in various parts of the country buy the 'ordinary mine-run of bootleg liquor', and then had the samples analyzed to get an idea of what a man's chances are of getting poisonous booze."
