Happy Repeal of Prohibition! Belated
On December 5, 1933, Prohibition officially ended in the United States.
Prohibition had a couple of results that no one expected. First, many people decided not to obey the law. No government likes to govern when they know the people won't obey the laws. Second, to fulfill the demand of all the scofflaws who wanted alcohol, organized crime began to accumulate a lot of money, giving them more influence than ever before.
The main reason to bring this up is to remind you that there are still Prohibitionists out there. They want to stop you from drinking. And smoking. And doing anything fun.
