21st Amendment Twenty-first Amendment
Notes:
The amendment does not prohibit states or municipalities from prohibiting alcohol sales within their boundaries. ... It is the only Amendment thus far ratified by state conventions, specially selected for the purpose; whereas all other amendments have been ratified by state legislatures. It is also the only amendment that was passed for the explicit and nearly sole purpose of repealing an earlier amendment to the Constitution.
