Make sure you have a drink today. Why? Because you can. From 1920 to 1933, although private consumption of alcohol was not illegal, the sale, production, transportation and importation of alcohol were, making it somewhat difficult for the average citizen to consume at home. Today marks the 80th anniversary of the passage of the 21st Amendment, known by many as Repeal Day, as it repealed the 18th Amendment, which started Prohibition. Cheers!
