In 1933, on this day
Prohibition went away.
That's because the 21st amendment, which undid the 18th amendment, was fully ratified on 12/5/33.
No, I don't actually remember it. But Funky Brown Chick mentioned it.
Prohibition was a horrible idea. Banning such a popular substance led to nothing but trouble. For one thing, Prohibition created gigantic black market opportunities for deadly thugs. I'm glad we'll never do anything like that again.
The war on drink,
Which fed money to so many thugs
Was a lot like the war on drugs.
