Those were the days, when congress paid some respect to the Constitution. Second Prohibition didn't need no steenkin amendment.

Doe, the stuff, that buys me beer
Ray, the guy who brings me beer
Me, the guy who drinks the beer
Fa, a long long way for beer
So, I think I'll have a beer
La, la la la la la beer
Tea, no thanks I'll have a beer
And that brings us back to beer!

I'll second that, Headso. It's about time a few other failed drug laws got the boot.

The 21st Amendment is a powerful reminder that the Constitution should only be amended to define rights, not take away rights.

That's congress's job (with support from the supreme court if anyone complains).

Buzzkill. There's enough food and water for everyone it's just poorly allocated. I do hope you don't eat anything organic, though, if you're so concerned about cropland.

Depends on the company. They still can, but most are "re-evaluating" their rules. Luckily I have a job that doesn't test.

I don't smoke, but I'm please that we're one of the few states that have our act together on this. No reason it should be prohibited. It's going to be interesting to see how the federal government handles it.

Nope, that was the Temperance movement, led primarily by southern baptist ministers like Rev. Howard Hyde Russell of the Anti-Saloon League.
it was the wimmins that pushed the hardest for Prohibition's repeal, due to the increase in crime, including the Women's Moderation Union, the Women's Organization for National Prohibition Reform, the Women's Committee for Repeal, the Molly Pitcher Club, etc.

Conversion to alcohol is the easiest means of long-term storage of cereal calories, which are otherwise quite perishable.

Maybe they pushed, maybe not - but since they couldn't vote when the 18th amendment was passed, it's ultimately not their fault.

Besides the initial screening, just how many times are you tested a year, on average?

Also, millions of people work for themselves, or for companies that arent all about their employees urine/saliva/hair.

/Sadly though, I am sober now because my current company actually does care ig there workers are high or not

79 anniversary subby? Is you not good at the maths?

The caption got the date wrong too but you "corrected" in the wrong direction, son.

Signed December 5 1932.

Don't you think you're being a bit dismissive of the likes of the National Woman's Christian Temperance Union, Carrie Nation, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton?

They could vote in most states, which are needed to ratify any amendment. Link

Really, Massachusetts?

What's weird is that right after the revolution, many of the 13 states revoked women's right to vote.
