Advertisement Each Amendment to the Constitution came about for a reason — to overrule a Supreme Court decision, to force a societal change, or to revise the details of the Constitution.
Implementation[ edit ] After more than ten years of the country going dry, on December 6,Senator John Blaine of Wisconsin submitted a resolution onto the floor of the Senate to submit the amendment to the states for ratification, which followed in February The Amendment was quickly ratified, with Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Utah ratifying the amendment on December 5, State and local control[ edit ] The second section bans the importation of alcohol in violation of state or territorial law.
This has been interpreted to give states essentially absolute control over alcoholic beveragesand many U. Mississippi was the last, remaining dry until ;  Kansas continued to prohibit public bars until Court rulings[ edit ] Section 2 has been the source of every Supreme Court ruling directly addressing Twenty-first Amendment issues.
Early rulings suggested that Section 2 enabled states to legislate with exceptionally broad constitutional powers. In State Board of Equalization v. First, the Court held that Section 2 abrogated the right to import intoxicating liquors free of a direct burden on interstate commerce, which otherwise would have been unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause before passage of the Twenty-first Amendment.
Borenthe Supreme Court found that analysis under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment had not been affected by the passage of the Twenty-first Amendment.
Although the Court did not specify whether the Twenty-first Amendment could provide an exception to any other constitutional protections outside of the Commerce Clauseit acknowledged "the relevance of the Twenty-first Amendment to other constitutional provisions becomes increasingly doubtful".

Borenprovided a brief but notable dissent based solely on Section 2. Rhode Islandthe Court held states cannot use the Twenty-first Amendment to abridge freedom of speech protections under the First Amendment.
In declaring the law unconstitutional, the Court reiterated that "although the Twenty-first Amendment limits the effect of the Dormant Commerce Clause on a State's regulatory power over the delivery or use of intoxicating beverages within its borders, the Amendment does not license the States to ignore their obligations under other provisions of the Constitution".
Heald held that the Twenty-first Amendment does not overrule the Dormant Commerce Clause with respect to alcohol sales, and therefore states must treat in-state and out-of-state wineries equally.
The Court criticized its earliest rulings on the issue, including State Board of Equalization v. The aim of the Twenty-first Amendment was to allow States to maintain an effective and uniform system for controlling liquor by regulating its transportation, importation, and use.
The Amendment did not give States the authority to pass nonuniform laws in order to discriminate against out-of-state goods, a privilege they had not enjoyed at any earlier time.The Eighteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution reads: Section 1.
