“The 18th article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.”
— 21st Amendment
The 18th Amendment, and the National Prohibition Act that followed, were meant to create a safe, “dry” nation. Instead, we have more crime and need more police than before!
Many people just kept drinking—and breaking the law.
We’ve never repealed an amendment before, but today we passed the 21st Amendment to get rid of the 18th.
The era of Prohibition is over.
