Happy Repeal Day!

The 21st Amendment

Section 1. The eighteenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.


On December 5, 1933, Utah approved this amendment to the Constitution, becoming the last state needed to ratify it and thereby repeal Prohibition. So get out there and celebrate (safely, of course) your Constitutionally guaranteed Right to Party! Maybe the bars in your local community have a celebration planned (Charleston SC, Louisville KY, Tampa FL, Santa Barbara CA, and Washington DC are some of the cities where I’ve found festivities being scheduled). Or, just go to your favorite watering hole and buy a round for everyone.

Even if you personally do not drink alcohol, celebrate the fact that a minority of Americans, despite their best efforts and using every means they could, were in the end unable to restrict the rights of the majority.
