An Excuse To Drink – December 5, 1933: Happy Repeal Day!
Today in 1933, the state of Utah ratified the 21st Amendment to the Constitution. With the three-quarters majority achieved, the Amendment passed and the dark days of Prohibition were finally over.
The name scofflaw stems from a newspaper contest that asked readers to come up with a word for the people who knowingly violated Prohibition.
