Repeal Day: December 5th

by Shona Milne on December 5, 2010

Probition in the US lasted about fourteen years from 1919 to 1933. Utah, ironically, was the final state to vote for ratification of  the 21st Ammendment to repeal Probition. The 21st Amendment went into effect on December 5th, 1933. I suggest everyone lift a glass in celebration.

The 21st Amendment

Ratified December 5, 1933

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 The eighteenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.

Section 2. The transportation or importation into any State, Territory, or possession of the United States for delivery or use there in of intoxicating liquors, in violation of the laws thereof, is hereby prohibited.

Section 3. This article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by conventions in the several States, as provided in the Constitution, within seven years from the date of the submission hereof to the States by the Congress.
