The Quiz: Which state cast the deciding vote for the repeal of Prohibition?

Maine
Louisiana
Utah
Texas

Explanation : On December 5, 1933, Prohibition officially came to an end. The 18th Amendment became the first in American history to be repealed when the requisite three-fourths of states voted to legalize liquor. Several states raced to become the official deciding vote to make the repeal official, and the state that eventually got it done was one that is by some measures the most sober in the union: Utah. The notoriously boozy city of New Orleans celebrated the repeal with 20 minutes of uninterrupted cannonball fire.

Correct Answer: Utah
