California Proposition 22, Sale of Alcohol a Misdemeanour (1918)
|Voting on Alcohol|
|Not on ballot|
The Prohibition Amendment had appeared on the California ballot, and been defeated, just four short years earlier.
Two other alcohol-related measures appeared on the 1914 California ballot--California Proposition 39 (1914) and California Proposition 47 (1914)--both of which were geared toward mitigating the impact of the drive to prohibit alcohol in the state.
California Proposition 2 (1916) appeared on the 1916 ballot--it also lost--which attempted to prohibit alcohol by prohibiting its use.
California Proposition 1 (1918) appeared with Proposition 22 on the 1918; they both lost.
