Repeal Day in Vermont and Colorado

On this day in 1933, the Vermont and Colorado legislatures both ratified the repeal of prohibition. [CR]’s repeal section details the history of prohibition in both states – Vermont’s status as a border state saddled it with unique enforcement challenges, and Colorado often dealt with violence while upholding the law. The Rutland Herald published a commentary about Vermont’s repeal anniversary in yesterday’s edition. If you’re a resident of Colorado or Vermont, raise a glass today to the repeal of prohibition in your home state!
