Buy. Sell. Consume.

Just in time for the holidays, it’s time to celebrate Repeal Day! This has nothing to do with the  President, but it will drive you to drink. On this day in 1933, the 21st amendment trumped the 18th and the production and consumption of alcohol became legal once again.

Prior to the 18th amendment individual states choose whether they were a dry or wet state, a.k.a. approved the sale of alcohol or didn’t. The 18th amendment took that decision away from the states and gave it to the federal government, who stamped a big fat “ILLEGAL” sign on it.  A dry country we became, if you overlook the rise of mobs and gangs who saw this new law as an opportunity to make a lot of illegal money. 

The 21st amendment started putting mobs out of business and pushed them into harder other crimes, like gambling, stealing, and guns. Of course bootleg liquor wasn’t exactly drama or casualty free.  So, the question is, “Is marijuana the new liquor?” Celebrate by raising your glass and letting me know your thoughts. Drink. Be merry and…

HOLIDAY ON MY FRIENDS!!!
