Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Perhaps this is farfetched

Temperance campaigns are certainly odd expressions of normative expectations (not continent behavior), and resulting legislation by state in the US exercises doctrinal legal realism (don't stop reading at wiki) to the limit of public safety.

Personal point of reference: Some twenty-years ago a few of my clients were a number of beer, distillery, or wine importers. Advertising media was statutorily limited to print and event (promo) media. I've been out of the loop for ten years or so (I am not in the life and not regular teevee audience). Have you notice as have I over the last five years or so increasing frequency of broadcast commercials (00:30) of beer, spirits, and liqueurs, sanctioned by a "mice type" disclaimer to "drink responsibly"?

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
