Welcome to TheSpeakeasy — a blog designed to help celebrate the 75th Anniversary of National Prohibition Repeal.December 5th is the official date in 1933 that the 36th state, Utah, ratified the 21st Amendment — ending a 13-year nightmare that didn’t decrease alcohol abuse but increased it, didn’t eliminate crime but criminalized ordinary citizens, and didn’t increase prosperity but robbed the treasury of taxes.

So welcome to TheSpeakeasy. Glad you visited and please come back for more information on Prohibition Repeal news and events as states across the country continue to modernize archaic Prohibition-era alcohol laws.
