When did Prohibition end?
Prohibition was a period in United States history that lasted from 1920 to 1933, during which the sale, production, and transportation of alcohol was prohibited by law. It was a time of widespread organized crime, illegal speakeasies, and bootlegging. However, Prohibition eventually came to an end with the ratification of the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution on December 5, 1933. This amendment repealed the 18th Amendment, which had established Prohibition in the first place. Once Prohibition was repealed, states were allowed to regulate and tax the production and sale of alcohol, and the legal drinking age was set at 21.
