Center hosts successful webinar commemorating 90th Anniversary of the 21st Amendment

The Center for Alcohol policy was pleased to host this webinar where our panelists led a fascinating conversation about the global history of Prohibition and the 21st Amendment!

90 years ago on December 5, 1933, the 21st Amendment was ratified by the states repealing the 18th Amendment and giving way to the creation of our current state-based alcohol regulatory scheme.

This succinct amendment ended the nationwide prohibition of alcohol and gave states the authority to regulate alcohol how their citizens best see fit.

We marked the anniversary of passage of the 21st Amendment with a conversation between Mark Lawrence Schrad Ph.D., author of Smashing the Liquor Machine and Professor of Political Science at Villanova University and Brannon Denning, Center for Alcohol Policy Advisor and Associate Dean and Professor of Law at Samford University’s Cumberland School of Law.

This webinar explored the unique nature of alcohol regulation in the United States and beyond, Prohibition, the 21st Amendment and as well as some of the issues and debates surrounding its consideration and ratification.

These professors discussed Professor Schrad’s fascinating book as well as another book that, like the 21st Amendment, is celebrating its 90th Anniversary, Toward Liquor Control.
