CHEERS!: Prohibition Ends on This Day in 1933

It was this day in 1933 that Prohibition came to an end! It was 5:32 p.m. exactly, if you are looking for a good time to take a sip this afternoon!

It was then that the state of Utah became the 36th state to ratify the 21st Amendment.  That one repealed the ridiculous 18th Amendment that had outlawed all booze for nearly 14 years!

To date, this is the only time in American history in which a constitutional amendment was passed for the purpose of repealing another!

You know you’re an alcoholic when you’ll pass an AMENDMENT TO AN AMENDMENT just to get a drink.
