Happy Repeal Day

78 years ago today Congress passed the 21st amendment repealing prohibition.  An interesting fact about the amendment ending prohibition: it is the only amendment to use state conventions for ratification and not the typical ratification by state legislator.

Without the 21st amendment the plant pictured here would be as illegal marijuana. I still can’t get over our ability to make a plant worth of a criminal offense.  Can you?

Today I had a Magic Hat Circus Boy to celebrate.  What did you sip on repeal day?
