Cheers!

80 years ago today, on December 5, 1933, the Twenty-first Amendment to the United States Constitution was ratified, repealing the Eighteenth Amendment prohibiting alcohol. It is the only Amendment to repeal a previous one, as well as the only one to have been ratified using the method of state ratifying conventions. While Georgia took no action to consider the Amendment, you can raise a toast to Utah for ratifying it and putting the number of states over the needed 3/4’s mark! Cheers!
