Dec. 29 – On this day in Montana history in 1927 prohibitionists meeting in Helena were outraged at what they claimed were rampant violations of the national Prohibition Law by doctors and druggists. The law allowed permits to be issued to doctors and druggists to provide drinking alcohol to patients. It wasn’t clear exactly who was “drinking” to their health, but prohibitionists found it a sobering problem.
