Although some states had enacted statewide prohibition, National Prohibition existed between January of 1920 and December of 1933. The many problems it created led to Repeal in the latter year. Some states continued statewide prohibition until the mid-1960s, when Mississippi passed local option that permitted individual counties to decide for themselves whether or not to maintain prohibition within their own boundaries.

Doesn't matter stay away from both unless you wanna end up in prison. There are several differences between marijuana and alcohol. Marijuana is usually smoked, and alcohol is consumed by drinking it. (It is also possible to drink marijuana if you brew it into a tea, but that is not the most common method.) Marijuana is illegal (and even though some states have legalized it, the US federal government has not legalized it) and alcohol is legal, except in Muslim countries where it is prohibited.
