The way prohibition passed wasn't that the 'drys' convinced legislators to vote with them - they actively worked to defeat them. If you weren't right on their issue, they came into your district and supported your opponent, who usually ended up winning. Doesn't matter on what issue they won or lost, just that they were gone and the new legislator had committed to voting with the drys.
If you want to change the law, change the legislators.
