Today, 80 years ago the Prohibition was repealed.
Cheers to that!!!
Here a bit of history: Prohibition started In 1919, with the Eighteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution, enabling national prohibition one year later. Meaning NO Alcohol at all (unthinkable)
Many women, notably members of the Woman’s Christian Temperance Union, were pivotal in bringing about national Prohibition in the United States, believing it would protect families, women, and children from the effects of alcohol abuse. I can see that abuse is never OK, but a drink here and there makes life easier, at least that's my experience.
Time pass by and finally some reasonable politician proposed The Cullen-Harrison Act, which was signed by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on March 22, 1933. It authorized the sale of 3.2 percent beer (thought to be too low an alcohol concentration to be intoxicating) and wine, which allowed the first legal beer sales since the beginning of Prohibition on January 16, 1920.
In 1933 state conventions ratified the Twenty-first Amendment, which repealed Prohibition. The Amendment was fully ratified on December 5, 1933. Federal laws enforcing Prohibition were then repealed.
Today should be a BIG Holiday! At least it will be for me :)
I'll tell you guys later how did I celebrate
Cheers to Prohibition repeal and the Twenty-first Amendment!
