Got some car troubles? Put a little Hadacol in the tank, that should make things run just fine. "What's Hadacol?" you ask. Well it was a "tonic" medicine that was marketed as a dietary supplement, concocted by Louisiana Senator Dudley LeBlanc. It just happened to contain 12% alcohol as a "preservative". When the Federal government repealed prohibition in 1933, the 21st amendment still prohibited the sale of alcohol in violation of local laws. Many countys, particularly in the southern states, never repealed prohibition. Hadacol was a very popular medicine, especially in those "dry" counties. Some pharmacies even sold it by the shot glass.
