    The correct answer is A) Drink alcohol and D) Buy alcohol for medical reasons.

    The 18th amendment strictly prohibited the "sale, distribution, and manufacturing" of alcohol. However, it says nothing about drinking alcohol within the amendment. Along with this, doctors still had the ability to give citizens alcohol if it was for medical purposes. This resulted in thousands of Americans gaining access to alcohol legally during the 1920's.
