Picoblog Question – 2016 – Post #45

What is Amendment XXI of the U.S. Constitution?

My two cents, but please share yours:

AMENDMENT XXI

Passed by Congress February 20, 1933. 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The eighteenth article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.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 therein 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.”

  1. Huh. Now I wish they’d rethink this War on Drugs. I dislike both alcohol and drugs, but the prohibition of each has not led in the desired direction.

    • So true, Aunt Mary. The War on Drugs has pretty much been a failure. Cheers, Ashley

  2. Yes, a lot of people have been punished but drugs are still flowing in from all over. There’s too much money to be made, it’s worth the risks for many folks. Just like it was with Prohibition. 😦

    • So true, Aunt Mary. Also, within ten years, most homes will have 3D printers. Folks around the world will be able to manufacture at will most anything legal, or illegal, on their desktops. This technology will render an awful lot of rules, regulations, mandates, executive orders, and laws obsolete and entirely unenforceable. 🙂 Cheers, Ashley
